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

    As a kid - I took Line 2 to school. Got on west of Old Mill. I loved when the subway travelled over the Humber at Old Mill. I was thinking that the view would be great at Eglinton Flats on Line 5. Gotta love these councillors. Solving all these *real* problems. It's not for no reason that the...

    Toronto | Ontario Line (was Relief Line South, in Design) | ?m | ?s

    It's striking and exciting to look at this and see the change in standards, scale, imagination from the original Queen station box to the new Ontario line. Seventy years has brought a lot of change. Three thoughts: 1. You have to walk half a train length back from the Line 1 train to get to...

    Toronto | Ontario Line (was Relief Line South, in Design) | ?m | ?s

    I think at this stage, we are at 10% design. Design a flat station length section in if the budget for the station isn’t there. Future-proof a several billion dollar investment.

    It's not like we can't infill a station. North York Centre.

    Toronto | Ontario Line (was Relief Line South, in Design) | ?m | ?s

    Glass half full. Glass half empty. This is the half empty view. It's been 22 yrs since Jan 1, 2000 and we got 6 stops on Line 1 (TYSSE) and Line 4. Not a great 20 yrs. And in 20 before that Downsview, Kipling, Kennedy and the Scarborough LRT. Even less. This (past) decade brings two...

    Toronto | Crosstown LRT | ?m | ?s

    This would be a nice problem for the TTC and other transit agencies after 26 months of pandemic curtailed demand.

    We're on post #20,000 and some odd. And seven years of construction. We should hit 60,000 in this discussion by the opening....

    I’m a neighbour. I think I’ll be fine with it.

    Toronto | Crosstown LRT | ?m | ?s

    Perfect reason to replace them with TTC livery. This is one of the dumbest most vainglorious exercises in corporate vanity I have ever seen and to top it off it’s between two government agencies with our tax dollars. Stupid. In Toronto, “T” is for TTC shortcomings and all. Metrolinx projects...

    Toronto | Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport Pedestrian Tunnel | ?m | ?s | Ports Toronto | Arup

    I effing hate those landings. It’s stomach turning. And for those who don’t fly a lot it can happen with the biggest planes like a 777. They are as easily tossed about in strong crosswinds.

    Roads: Ontario/GTA Highways Discussion

    Am I wrong in thinking that when you leave loose gravel and rubbish on a street that other vehicles passing over they tend to grind up the asphalt more aggressively? I wish the city cleaned up gravel, cement and other rubbish that I see laying about. I always feel the street degrades more...

    Fashion District (this is the only one that sounds "off" to me. The word "Fashion" just really stands out to me and not in a good way; it just comes off as artificial. Whereas the other names along the line all have a "history" to them; they sound like actual places. Maybe someone could find...

    I sure hope that there is a place for faregates to be installed at some future point. It would make so much sense.

    @W. K. Lis - did I express this badly?

    TTC: McNicoll Bus Garage (Approved)

    I think @smallspy and I have gone around on this before when I asked where the next one would be and he offered 'in the west'. Real estate is deadly downtown, but if you've ever watched buses dead-heading on O'Conner Drive to Scarborough, locations like the Lansdowne Carhouse/Garage, the...
