    TTC: Other Items (catch all)

    If you create a heatmap of every 'very specific' collision, you'd probably cover every inch of arterial/main street in the city, depending on how many years back you go. Calling crashes 'specific' is not the defense you think it is.

    Toronto Ontario Line 3 | ?m | ?s

    False. Metrolinx has been eying a 'Lakeshore' relief line since at least 2011. And a relief line going to Donmills and Eglinton has been envisioned since at least 1985.

    TTC: Other Items (catch all)

    Rare on this one spot? Sure, rare on the whole corridor? I won't be so sure. Cars crash all the time all over. You want to protect the right of way from potential intrusions to minimize disruption.

    TTC: Other Items (catch all)

    Those curbs should be high enough and strong enough to stop cars. I know it's not scenic, but the current ones seem more of a suggestion. Why not use similar ones used to stop them from running of the bridge?

    Announced today: REM delayed. wont open at the end of 2024 as previously announced. They blame complexities in the Mount Royale tunnel. Deux-Montagnes and Anse-à-l’Orme branches don't have an official opening estimate anymore. Status update: the tunnel has finished all 'infrastructure' and now...

    Toronto Ontario Line 3 | ?m | ?s

    Let me bring back your original comment. I bolded the part where you are incorrect. In the image you graciously annotated, you show that all the street frontage on Carlaw is a 'streetwall' of retail (minus the tiny plaza). On the other side is a street wall of houses that will definitely get...

    The only thing it has over the original REM East is that it has better station density. Otherwise its shorter. Is not grade separated. More expensive to run (drivers). The trains will need to be longer to handle the same capacity. https://www.cbc.ca/amp/1.7110791 The original plan was also...

    Sheppard Line 4 Subway Extension (Proposed)

    When St Claire was given it's own right of way the line actually got slower. When the Spadina bus got upgraded to "LRT," the line got slower. When the Flexities arrived in Toronto, the city reduced headways (because they had higher capacity) and slowed down the trains further. So now lines like...

    An Ontario Line-style revamp by Metrolinx is what I hope for. But I guess that is fantasy map territory.

    Or, they can elevate it. The Surrey-Langley SkyTrain extension is costing 4 Billion for 16km of rail and 8 stations. Build it compact and simple like the Canada Line or the original plan for the REM East. Let's say each elevated station costs 150 million to build; adding 10 more stations to the...

    I'm not a fan of the Metro option (6) having only 4 to 6 stations on an 8.5km line. At that point, you are reaching express-style station spacings, which leaves a lot of gaps in the middle that would require busses. I feel 1 station every 1km should be the average. Option 2 has many connection...

    I saw that! The French text is saying that it has a right of way. That can just look like Edmonton LRT with its crossing gates but still on street level. It isn't clear to me if they mean it is totally separated from traffic. Or maybe by 'tramway' they just mean Toronto Streetcars? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
