    Crosstown LRT | Metrolinx

    This is just sad. Every business on the strip directly behind the construction on Eglinton is either completely empty or closed for good. Crosstown LRT won’t be complete until “well into” 2022. #topoli @CityNews

    Businesses pay whatever amount they feel will get them the best value for their money. That doesn't necessarily mean the least possible amount. Case in point: A software company is buying computers for their engineers. Are they going to buy them the cheapest possible computers? No, of course...

    Crosstown LRT | Metrolinx

    Successive governments and the media have brainwashed the public into thinking lower spending = better results. No competent business would ever be run in such a manner

    Metrolinx: GTHA Fare Integration

    The Liberals were never serious about implementing this. There's no reason that planning for this had to be a decade-long process.

    Crosstown LRT | Metrolinx

    While I'm not certain that I'd support handing out compensation (as you said, it would be a real burden on realizing these projects), I can sympathize with the arguments in favour. I view this situation as being generally analogous to compensation for property expropriation. In both cases, the...

    TTC: Streetcar Network

    Oh wonderful, another thing for me to be irrationally paranoid about!

    Crosstown LRT | Metrolinx

    I’m not convinced that it’s P3s themselves that are fundamentally broken. Rather, I’d suggest it’s the Government of Ontario’s implementation, where they want to load all the risk onto the private sector, that is broken. That said, I’ve seen nothing that indicates that P3s are fundamentally...

    It's gotten to the point where I've now remembered where all the potholes are and strategically avoid them. I just hope this isn't indicative of Crosslinx's overall level of care with this project. Also, future P3s really do need to carefully outline construction mitigation methods in the...

    Just look at the state of the road markings. Markings are faded and in the wrong spot. Years out-of-date road markings aren’t being removed. Old and out-of-date road signs litter the streets and sidewalks. It’s clear that Crosslinx does not give a damn about minimizing disruption I know I’ve...

    Ontario Line (was Relief Line South, in Design)

    Do you object to the proposal to build the Ontario Line in the lake?

    Eglinton business owners ‘desperate’ as Crosstown construction faces new delay

    Crosstown LRT | Metrolinx

    We’ve already seen that be a major factor in the Hamilton LRT and GO Electrification procurement. This might all indicate that IO’s preferred P3 model might not be viable anymore.

    Crosstown LRT | Metrolinx

    I think 10 years of construction for 10 km of subway is just absurd. Especially thru a predominantly suburban environment

    Ontario Line (was Relief Line South, in Design)

    The consequences would only be felt long after he's gone
