    Toronto | Crosstown LRT | ?m | ?s

    I suspect they have some real major issues like train problems, signal issues or ATO problems that isn't integrating well and they don't want to disclose until they resolve it. If Eglinton Station is aa bottleneck, they could split out a date unless that date is way pass 2023.

    TTC: Other Items (catch all)

    The majority of the board are elected councillors. To be elected, they are generally pretty well off to support quitting your decent job and have a reputation. These people will general not ride the TTC or bother mingling to the lower classes of society. So why would we be surprised that every...

    Line 5 - Eglinton Crosstown West Extension Airport Segment

    Seriously if they are to start some as simple as twining Highway 17 in 2026, I don't even know if they will even start this extension by 2030.

    TTC: Bloor Danforth Line 2 West Extension(s)

    Better off extending to Long Branch and develop that area. It'll be a good sell with a reliable connection with Sherway and a developed Etobicoke core at Kipling. The only thing they have to do is turn that 6 point intersection into a "North York Centre". Line 2 could extend furth along the...

    Metrolinx: Finch West LRT

    That’s putting yourself through 20 minutes of suffering as it inches though the highway 400 area

    Toronto | Crosstown Line 5 West Extension | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx

    Perhaps an intermediate capacity system like one of these solutions: https://www.hitachirail.com/products-and-solutions/rolling-stock/driverless/ It's not really fancy new tech like ML put it but rather something that TTC wasn't thinking of.

    At that time, this is true but I think by the mid 90s they will realize they need to bridge the U and probably proceeded with it around the time TYSSE is being built. There would be other problems such as a new subway yard is needed as whatever in the Kodak land might get developed into...

    I was referring to Line 6 since that was the comment made. Seems like Line 6 vehicles are running faster than Line 5 vehicles in videos, Line 6 seems to be performing better.

    They still got a bit of work to do. If everything is done underneath. I don’t see why they can’t install the rest of the tracks in a month time. There’s no special works, just straight tracks.

    More like a specification ML came up with that would reduce the cost of construction of stations, tunnels and elevated structures. It’s just designing around physics.

    Toronto | Crosstown Line 5 West Extension | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx

    The subway would be very hard to extend westward till we get someone like Doug Ford come in power. A phase 2 would extend to Yonge and a phase 3 to Don Mills. Any further extension eastwards would be difficult. We'll likely just see red bus lanes for decades like the 86/116 corridor.

    Roads: Highway 401 Widening - Highway 8 to Highway 410 (MTO, U/C, Planned)

    They will cut into the HOV lane. Some of these drivers drive like they will commit a crime if they don't get caught, weaving in and out of the HOV lane is a pretty minor offence to them.

    TTC: Other Items (catch all)

    They probably need more space to stock up on stuff since there is over a year wait time for certain parts these days.

    Must be some dedicated evader to hop the gate every day. If they are truly broke, lost their wallet, homeless or mental issues, they can do that. A fare gate would reduce these for regular folks who sees the flaw and simply take advantage of it. If fare gates help enforce a better society and...

    Toronto | Crosstown LRT | ?m | ?s

    The 334A/334B routing structure is approved with each running every 30 min combing to 15 min average between the overlapping route. Unless there is a budget issue where the current routing is kept, I don't see why it won't happen. Additional service might be required right after the last train...
