    TTC: Other Items (catch all)

    I'm not holding out hope but I'd give my first, second and third born along with sacrificing animals and virgins to the gods in order to get Andy back

    TTC: Other Items (catch all)

    Think of it like removing a structural support column in your home. You can do that and redistribute the weight but the costs are insane. Crossovers need to be clear of beams as much as possible,. Also, given the existing space in the tunnels you would need crossovers similar to Woodbine or VP...

    TTC: Other Items (catch all)

    A nice idea but not a practical one. There are barriers to doing so including structural, power supply, not to mention mechanical. The gaps between crossovers were never designed for crossovers and you cannot remove pillars to build a crossover. Those likely support the tunnel structure above...

    TTC: Other Items (catch all)

    This could be very interesting and may end up causing confusion. Think about it. Instagram used a Polaroid camera as their logo Most applications use a 3 1/2 floppy disk to represent the save feature The receiver of a corded telephone is used to represent calls. The point I am trying to make...

    BiWay is making a comeback

    This is precisely what I was getting at. I live in Scarborough and I cannot be bothered to go to Orfus Road simply for nostalgia. It is not easy to get to and very much out of my way. That being said, I would much rather go to Winners than I would Bi-Way

    BiWay is making a comeback

    A nice idea but I foresee two problems.. Firstly, the store is in the boonies relatively speaking. I have been to Orfus Road and it is not exactly easy to get without a car. It is an area full of outlet stores and not a practical location for starting a new business. Secondly, this will...

    Rogers Centre Renovations

    You can remove all the seats and replace them with seats made of Californium but the stadium itself is just a concrete bunker.

    Crosstown LRT | Metrolinx

    The problem is the areas infrastructure cannot handle it. An area full of stores and factories is different than an area full of 50 story condos

    GO Transit: Construction Projects (Metrolinx, various)

    Because of the gap between the train and the platform. They need to deploy a ramp for handicap access which is impossible to do in every car at every stop. The gap is large enough that wheelchairs, scooters and coffin carts need a ramp to enter or exit.
