    TTC: Other Items (catch all)

    This is a mischaracterization of what happened. The person was found not criminally responsible, and will definitely be incarcerated in a mental institution until they are deemed to no longer a threat. This is a part of the justice system and has been for a long time. From this story: "He will...

    Taylor Creek Park Management Plan

    They have paved the trail in the valley, and are just finishing paving the trail up the hill by the parking lot (they have the fence moved over so much to allow for said paving that I had to walk the Bike Share a bit). View of the newly paved trail, and the copse of recently planted trees...

    Cycling infrastructure (Separated bike lanes)

    I can't comment on getting this corrected. However, there is a path along the other side of Bayview beginning at the corner of the south lot and extending south to the Beltline. I've only run it, so I can't comment on quality for cycling. Reachable by crossing Bayview at the signals at the...

    Sheppard Line 4 Subway Extension (Proposed)

    So we both work at Sunnybrook. This is (internally) a long term (10 years) maybe tower, to be built where the M wing parking lot is). Ford is funding private clinic ORs, when ours are shuttered 12-14h a day (I work in pathology, and support the ORs). Why not fund Sunnybrook so we can run our...

    TTC: Other Items (catch all)

    And (e.g.) deferred maintenance of roads leading to more potholes. Tory used to proudly point out how many potholes the city was filling -- and that was really a sign of the rot he helped instill.

    Toronto Ontario Place | ?m | ?s | Infrastructure ON

    When we continually elect this government of clowns, we should expect a circus. I'm aware that these reports are rarely started with a blank slate; there is some goal in mind. But it's so very disappointing that the government is so obviously spending public funds to benefit private companies.

    West Don River in E.T. Seton Park Major Maintenance Project (TRCA)

    Sometimes since Friday, they have painted the new (unopened!) bike path and in the past few months paved the graded trail from Eglinton. The stairs remain unopened, with the construction staging site for the TE Seton/TRCA river works blocking the bottom anyway. Photos from today. They added the...

    Toronto Ontario Line 3 | ?m | ?s

    In the Don Valley behind and south of the Science Centre, they have over the past several weeks moved the bike path access from the OSC Gateway parking lot slightly further north and are constructing an access road to west and south of the archery range. Photos from today. Relocated bike path...

    *That's* why it looked so bad! I saw this posted in my local FB group, saw who posted it, and instantly gave it reduced credence

    Roads: Ontario/GTA Highways Discussion

    It's not artificial; it's for safety. Agreed that some changes should coincide with the reduction. But we can all read the speed limit signs

    Toronto Lower Don Lands Redevelopment | ?m | ?s | Waterfront Toronto

    Edit: @allengeorge's summary is much better It's by Alex Bozikowic. Summary (quick read): too much space given to roads, not enough to buildings. It could house more than 9000. It's going to be here for 100+ years, so we need to get this right, so he suggests another planning round for 6...

    TTC: Easier Access Phase III

    Donlands station mini update: A bit of progress on the ground level, and they've started framing the ceiling on the mezzanine. Also, the hoarding on the mezzanine has been replaced with a fence.

    Roads: Ambassador & Gordie Howe Bridges

    I just saw this on FB: temporary braces have been installed, connecting both sides of the bridge. There's a bit more on the Project's Twitter/X page:

    Toronto Crosstown LRT: Leaside Station | ?m | 1s | Metrolinx | Arcadis

    I thought the east part of the main station building (currently the site office) was going to be retail. Wasn't McDonald's going to return? Or maybe that was in the original plan back a decade or so ago..

    Toronto Crosstown LRT: Leaside Station | ?m | 1s | Metrolinx | Arcadis

    This is the first time I've seen weeding done by workers wearing hard hats. Of course the station is still a construction site.
