    TTC: Bloor Danforth Line 2 West Extension(s)

    agree, and with Toronto subway construction prices 12 km of subway would be around 8 billion. so rather put that money into all day 2 way Milton go with MCC center tunnel.

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

    But wouldn't the lrt ridership be boosted if the bus had an actual bus loop. The bus can continue south. Kind of like the 54 stops at Lawrence east Station but continues on. The bus would be off loaded and could be refilled on its way to bloor. That would add a bunch of capacity on these bus...

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

    Ya like a small bus terminal. I'm thinking like keelsdale or finch west station. Otherwise people will get hit while crossing and then metrolinx will be like oh, who would have known.

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

    Does anyone know why there are no bus terminals at these stations. Seems like it would be a heavy transfer point and would be more beneficial to have a designated space for bus to lrt movement.

    QEW Credit River Bridge threatened

    Yes like for tysse. If they did elevated but but made beautiful stations, the cost would be much lower, with really unique station design. I dont think it would be such on issue. But they decided to deep bore through industrial and sfh.

    Street Lighting

    Because snow doesn't accumulate on black angled roof tops already. These would only work in desert climates. And you would be still required to have the lights plugged into the grid. If they don't get enough power from solar energy they need back up power from the grid. So you saved no money...

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

    You wouldn't have the transfer and jane and eglinton. Its a flood zone. Thays why eglinton west is elevated there. Jane lrt or ontario line would vear off to Mount Dennis as it would be out of the flood zone and be a major transfer node.

    Roads: GTA West Corridor—Highway 413

    I'm personally against tolling all GTA highways because I know the toll would be similar to the 407 today with transponter fees. Anyone not upper middle class would be stuck on city roads. As the government has wouldn't say no to free money off hard working people. But do you think the 407 ETR...

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

    Oh thanks for letting me know. I heard they add a concrete sub-base as it's more durable for truck weight and increases life span of the road. While also being easy to resurface since its asphalt as the top layer. Curious they went with all asphalt, would expect the road to be ripped apart...

    Roads: GTA West Corridor—Highway 413

    Hey what if the government did a trade. 407 hands over the highway to government control. But in return they get the 401 express lanes they can toll. With the closed nature of the express lanes all they would have to do is put up the ETR cameras. I think that would be a pretty good deal for...

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

    So are they construction a concrete sub-base like the rest of the 401, or are they just using standard gravel aggregate and paving asphalt on top?

    VIA Rail

    Honestly I'm thinking they already forgot about HFR until the next election. Fed liberals will pay / contribute to infrastructure but don't like planning it. Hence why fed run projects are pretty much at standstill since 2015. (ahem... F35, DND, NWMO long term storage, HFR, etc.) The only think...

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

    Well in most places around the world. Their highways are usually elevated and tunneled with 2 lanes in each direction, keeping the footprint small. In ontario for some reason we have a requirement to build highways with 100 meter rows, or not build anything at all. In my opinion instead of...

    Toronto | GO Transit: Davenport Diamond Grade Separation | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx

    Honestly the design is okay, I wish they kept the large mural on the side of the guideway. It would add so nice art and colour. Thats my biggest grievance
