    Roads: GTA West Corridor—Highway 413—Guelph to 400

    I, for one, have to refute this. Growing up a minute from the QEW was fantastic convenience. It was great to live near a highway that could take you places quickly. Everyone in my neighbourhood would agree- we had little turnover for real estate, and when homes were for sale, they sold quickly...

    ^ that thing looks super confusing. Does anyone know of a good video of one of these in practice?

    It bothers me that when they moved that mature tree they placed it slightly crooked instead of perpendicular to the landscape.

    Really ruins the feel of the cenotaph park

    Ugh. Still can't believe this is the design they went with.

    Toronto | Union Station Revitalization | ?m | ?s | City of Toronto | NORR

    I can't 100% remember, but I think Chicago even does it at stations served only by a single line. I'm just annoyed because I've lost count the number of times I've paid my TTC fare and something goes wrong on the line... Results in me waiting 30+ mins for them to figure things out. Will there...

    Agreed. This is the norm in Chicago. The L train has the next several train departure times listed before you pay your fare. I can't understand why the TTC still does not offer similar.

    To be honest IMO we would have been better off in terms of GTA traffic flow if this was completed. Perhaps not the route they planned that would have destroyed some nice heritage, but something alongside it. For a major world city, our road connections and expressways are laughable

    You don't live in Peel or travel there regularly, do you?

    Roads: GTA West Corridor—Highway 413—Guelph to 400

    You forget about young families that would have bought said homes. They'll be either: strained by higher prices for the homes in the area (lower supply will increase prices faster), or they'll be pushed further away outside the city, enduring longer commutes and still contributing to traffic...

    I'm still hopeful someone will see the logic. We need connections. Connectivity. There are traffic problems in northern Peel and they need to be solved. We need to do something NOW. Sure, do that stuff, after this missing link is completed.

    Neat! I've always wondered why ramp entry signals exist on the eastbound QEW in Mississauga (ex. Erin Mills Pkwy, Mississauga Rd, Hurontario St, Cawthra Rd) but not other places that could really utilize them. 410 southbound comes to mind. What goes into the decision making as to whether one of...

    ^ Good God. How much longer??? I'm feeling doubtful about a summer opening now. I hate that there's no firm commitment. UGH

    Bloor-Yorkville Scene

    Oh wow. Yes, I thought they were going to take over the rexall space possibly. They had already significantly expanded their location in the basement once before when they merged in their vintages section from elsewhere in the mall. I guess they are going to capitalize on street frontage and...

    Whenever I am on the campus on a weekday, it's king's college circle parking that fills up first. It's the places on the fringes that tend to have lots of space. Parking is needed here in at least some capacity. For accessibility reasons, all buildings on the campus should have some form of...
