    Toronto Eglinton Line 5 Crosstown LRT

    I found this article from early 2012: https://toronto.citynews.ca/2012/5/29/eglinton-lrt-unlikely-to-meet-2020-completion-date-ttc-report/ Projected completion (by the TTC not Metrolinx) was 2022-2023. Metrolinx obviously maintained that the completion date would be 2020 till 2016/2017

    TTC: Jane (LRT) RapidTO

    While I generally agree with his thoughts on stop-removals being too heavy handed and a crutch to achieve better travel times, there are numerous stops that are definitely due for removal (for example the one sided stops at Patika Avenue and Raven Road as well as the far-side stop at Shephard.)...

    TTC/Metrolinx: Scarborough Subway Extension

    Ah that makes sense... must've been a change when they moved to the three-stop extension. explains the large bus terminal at Shephard and McCowan too. There could still be provisions made for an enclosed link to the mall however... I know they want to tear down the Cineplex for development...

    TTC/Metrolinx: Scarborough Subway Extension

    Latest render Old design but gives you an idea of the environment under the green roof Provision for a second entrance on Progress that could (presumably) be integrated into the neighboring STC development block and allow for a fully enclosed passage between the mall and Line 2 platforms

    Toronto 1900 Eglinton East | 159.95m | 48s | SmartCentres | a—A

    Looks like a settlement was reached for this proposal all the way back in August, with an issue date of November. E-decision here. 12 towers with ~5000 units and much much more Still likely waiting on that OPA 499 Appeal to be (hopefully?) dismissed sometime this year for full ZBA and OPA...

    Metrolinx: Bombardier Flexity Freedom & Alstom Citadis Spirit LRVs

    I'm sure that Bombardier/Alstom is capable of constructing such a model as many of their European trams are built with double-doors Assuming they win procurement for EWE trains Then the double-doors trams could be paired with original models to increase capacity across the board

    Simcoe Street Rapid Transit Visioning Study | City of Oshawa and Region of Durham

    I really do not understand going underground between Conlin and Robert when the right-of-way is 20m+... Hell there's even space for 2 lanes of traffic and 2 LRT tracks all the way to Adelaide/Brock street. Mixing modes is generally problematic as @ARG1 says as you get the drawbacks of an LRT...

    Ontario Line Extension West of Ontario Place (Speculation)

    There's only ~4.1km of tunnels in my map outside of the yellow extension... don't really see how you build rail on Dufferin without tunneling tbh

    Ontario Line Extension West of Ontario Place (Speculation)

    Reviving this thread with a speculative map of the Ontario Line's most likely future westward expansion paths! I think building elevated next to the Gardiner is a perfect opportunity to build a flying wye junction south of Parkside drive. I've omitted a direct connection to Jane via Swansea as...

    Simcoe Street Rapid Transit Visioning Study | City of Oshawa and Region of Durham

    As lovely as elevated would be along Simcoe the ROW is only ~16m south of Switzer Drive. Houses also have setbacks of less than 10m between there and downtown Oshawa. It would likely be nuked by homeowners.

    Toronto Ontario Line 3 | ?m | ?s

    @Northern Light @smably I really don't think it's so cut and dry with regards to P3's. There are pros and cons to the procurement model. I think the only reason the public purse got so screwed with regards to Eglinton is COVID, the first suit before the Pandemic was likely Metrolinx's fault and...

    Toronto Ontario Line 3 | ?m | ?s

    TBM's only just began tunneling for the Broadway subway in Vancouver and that is expected to be substantially completed in 2.5 years for a Q4 2025 opening (though a delay is quite possible). Length is comparable to the Pape tunnel. Supposedly the TBM's will "pass through" the already excavated...

    Eglinton Line 5 Crosstown West Extension Airport Segment

    As far as I am aware all alignments are conceptual and there may be multiple routes competing. As the link shows this is still firmly in the planning phase As @drum118 pointed out in the West extension thread, an Explorer Drive alignment would almost certainly necessitate a fully tunneled...

    Toronto Ontario Line 3 | ?m | ?s

    The Evergreen extension in Coquitlam runs down the median of a road somewhat wider than Parkside. It's quite nice. Yea no I understand that it would be a hard ask on Parkside, especially as setbacks are quite minimal. Houses almost directly front the street at points. You could eat 2 lanes...

    Mayor John Tory's Toronto

    I thought the province would have to OK the by-law to confirm it does advance provincial priorities... This wording seems to suggest that the Mayor simply has to be of the opinion that it does so
