    Eglinton East LRT | Metrolinx

    This boggles my mind, spending how many billions to build a subway out that far where there is no rational reason for it, and for the purpose of building something else cheap. wow.

    Eglinton East LRT | Metrolinx

    Sigh, The planned stop spacing is very good, it won't be a streetcar line or slower than a local bus, and is needed for capacity anyway. I have regularly taken the 86 bus in from the outer ends of the route, I would have much rather taken this LRT than a bus.

    TTC: Sheppard Subway Extension (Proposed)

    You'd have a Subway line under a street that features the backyards of residential homes facing it? Wow,

    TTC: Other Items (catch all)

    The TTC will throw their enforcement officers under the bus to appease anti police twitter loudmouths. They can't do their jobs anyway.

    Eglinton East LRT | Metrolinx

    Issues I can see here is that the red lanes won't have sufficient capacity. I don't think the EELRT needs to go past Sheppard and Morningside, and so having a Subway through Malvern is way overkill.

    Much preferred.

    Eglinton East LRT | Metrolinx

    Reducing the cost by $2 Billion will make this project much more likely to get built. It was not worth it to tunnel under Lawrence and Morningside, a surface platform at Kennedy can be just as close as where the underground platform was to be, prior to the SSE changes. As well, the surface...

    Toronto | Union Pearson Express | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx | MMM Group Limited

    Have you tried picking up your guest from the end of the Link people mover? You can wait at the Cell Phone lot, that the airpost seems to refuse to acknowledge even exists.

    GO Transit: Service thread (including extensions)

    I assumed the savings they assumed from the route switch had come from when the GM plant had been shut down they were going to reuse the existing rail bridge. But then when the plant reopened they were stuck to the new route and then needed to build a new bridge.

    VIA Rail

    The Lakeshore East Go line is closed this weekend for construction, this would be Via diverting because of the closure.

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

    To just past Keele, before that it is tight.

    Toronto | Crosstown LRT | ?m | ?s

    Extending the tunnel to Don Mills was more because it would have easier to launch the TBM's from there with no increase in cost, and that is a shallower ravine, the tunnels had been designed, no issues that were brought up that I saw.

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

    There is no room on the surface for rail transit where the city decided to put it underground,

    Toronto | Crosstown LRT | ?m | ?s

    They should have told the community group that fought against extending the tunnel to Don mills road, and then later complained about surface construction here, to get lost.

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

    I've done the same, but vice versa, was irritating to have GO Stations at either end of my trip but being unable to use them,

    Toronto | Crosstown LRT | ?m | ?s

    I hope not, but I'm sure I would have noticed that in the planning if that is the case.

    Toronto | Crosstown LRT | ?m | ?s

    Yes it will be fine, there won't be a plethora of riders coming out of nowhere, the rest of the system will be in trouble if that happens, and there is already a subway and a GO line to Kennedy Station.

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

    What's the bug deal with that? The space won't make or break having sufficient capacity, and I don't think the dead space is as much as it appears to be.

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

    Those diagrams are from when it was a TTC project, not a Metrolinx P3. Many details could have changed since then.

    Toronto | Crosstown LRT | ?m | ?s

    Not true, and the stations are built for 90m trains, how much shorter do you think they could be?
