    Ion Light Rail (Kitchener-Waterloo) & King/Victoria Transit Terminal

    You mean like how Missisauga built a new city core? Regardless of how much tranist is running down it, as long as Hespeler is being used as a major intercity highway, it's hard to imagine anything walkable being developed around there. I'm inclined to agree with Drum118 that the route needs to...

    Toronto | Pearson Transit Hub | ?m | ?s | GTAA

    The CBC article mentioned renderings. Was there moe than the one that's designed to convey "ooh, shiny"?

    407 Rail Freight Bypass/The Missing Link

    One complication with the "obvious alignment" compared to a 401 or greenfield alignment is the need for a rail-rail grade separation between the new missing link corridor and CP Galt Sub.

    Roads: Fantasy Proposals

    Hamilton Harbour Tunnel This tunnel would provide a direct connection between Highway 6 at the 403 and the Wellington/Victoria one-way road pair to provide an alternate access route to Downtown Hamilton and upper Hamilton via Claremont Access. This tunnel would be built in conjunction with...

    GO Transit: Service thread (including extensions)

    The article actually doesn't say anything about stops per day, it doesn't even say anything about the current number of trips (increasing to 4 from 2). It also doesn't mention the major increase of bus trips on the same corridor. It's almost as if whoever wrote the article didn't read the...

    GO Transit: Service thread (including extensions)

    According to the CBC, "GO Transit's new fall schedule has more stops in Kitchener, Guelph" http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/kitchener-waterloo/go-transit-fall-schedule-guelph-kitchener-1.3732430 As far as I know, the number of stops on the schedule in Kitchener and Guelph is the same. However the...

    GO Transit: Service thread (including extensions)

    I know a lot in Kitchener will be happy with regular (not even hourly) passenger GO bus service along Highway 6 to tie in Waterloo/Wellington into the frequent Lakeshore Line. In the 10 years it's going to take to fix the bottlenecks on the Kitchener line, there could easily be DMU service on...

    407 Rail Freight Bypass/The Missing Link

    Then it's still wrong. There is no human transport on the CN York Sub. (People getting paid to move the train don't count as human cargo). At best the diagram is incomplete

    Park Lawn Ramp Configuration and GO Station Access I know this could just as easily be a transit map, but here's how I envision the road network around a conceptual Park Lawn GO station. -Legion Rd extended north to meet Legion Rd N (not sure if this is already a plan) -EB off ramp converted...

    Roads: Fantasy Proposals

    There's a lot of good stuff in that document. I particularly like the reconfiguration of the Jameson-Lake Shore ramps. It would be really great to see Lake Shore Blvd pushed north in order to increase the amount of usable parkland along the Waterfront. And although it would almost certainly...

    Roads: Gardiner Expressway

    The rail corridor at Cherry is above grade compared to the section between Bathurst and Blue Jays Way which is in a trench. I'm not sure what you're getting at claiming that it's possible to deck over the section at Cherry. Extending the streetcar tracks down Cherry, the Relief Line and the East...

    Roads: Fantasy Proposals

    An example of a fantasy proposal: St Clair Extension to Don Valley Pkwy St Clair Ave is extended eastward through Mud Creek Ravine and north of the Beltline Trail to connect with Bayview Ave. A new bridge would be built over the Don River and GO rail line to connect with onramps to the DVP...

    Roads: Fantasy Proposals

    I agree with you regarding the need for a freeway along the north edge of London. Veterans Memorial Parkway is currently being built to be upgradable to act as the eastern section of a London ring road should a northern bypass be built. As for "a freeway connecting Hamilton to KWC" (Waterloo...

    Roads: Fantasy Proposals

    To avoid discussion of officially-proposed projects from going off-topic on their appropriate threads, I'd recommend moving discussion of fantasy road proposals here.

    Plans to fill in Allen Road

    Odd suggestion for admins. Why don't we break off discussion of Euphoria and others' fantasy proposals for Allen Rd into another thread. We have a fantasy transit map thread, but I don't recall (I could be mistaken) ever seeing a thread devoted to fantasy road proposals. In this way, people who...
