    TTC: Scarborough Subway Extension (formerly LRT replacement) (City of Toronto, Design Phase)

    They have a budget, but infinite is an amusing joke. The reason they make parts is because there is no budget for procuring newer equipment.

    TTC: Yonge North Subway Extension (Finch-Richmond Hill) (Funded/Planned)

    People living near Royal Orchard don't want it nor does the lack of existing and potential density support it. Cummer will likely be added or a high density project will contribute towards costs is my prediction.

    Ontario Line (was Relief Line South, in Design)

    Except the Viva bus has shown how much demand there will be when it is replaced with the line 1 extension. I think with Richmond Hill's town centre plans Ontario line being extended passed Eglinton will probably have to be accelerated.

    Crosstown LRT | Metrolinx

    Which is think is generally fine, especially if stations are built over eventually.

    Montréal Transit Developments

    I was going to reference the exact same project. Was it complex and expensive? Sure, but it's not the impossibility that is being disseminated to the media.

    Montréal Transit Developments

    It's a pretty subjective opinion; many people reference the skytrain as an example. This isn't a fair comparison, as it is elevated in an almost exclusive suburban or industrial environment.

    Montréal Transit Developments

    I'm referencing the opinion that I and many others hold/are concerned; regardless of measures taken, having it above ground will be visually obtrusive and unappealing compared to below ground.

    Montréal Transit Developments

    I'm just going off the rough english translation of what was mentioned in the LaPress article. Really the only thing that's changed is a portal to have an underground transfer, but it will still be essentially all above ground if the article is correct.

    This is still a very, very minimal amount of effort in making the proposed line blend in better with the streetscape.

    Suddenly the impossible is possible

    Ontario Line North of Eglinton (was Relief Line North) (Speculation)

    A very odd curved link over the north, definitely fantasy category.

    King Street (Streetcar Transit Priority)

    Was there not a suggestion IO did not allow transit signals? Yet there they are in the manual.

    TTC: Yonge North Subway Extension (Finch-Richmond Hill) (Funded/Planned)

    But that's kind of the point. Doug Ford and many conservatives have always derided the DRL as some excessive line for the urban elite. What you have instead is adequate capacity elevated line, but a overcapacity expensive underground line/lines in suburban areas (or just ridiculous like Eglinton...

    Because Doug Ford is intent on micromanaging everything even at the city level and wants higher density than the city has zoned.

    Ontario Line (was Relief Line South, in Design)

    An uncertain regulatory environment will scare off investors.
