    TTC: Glencairn Station Skylight Replacement Project

    Great news! How fantastic this section will be when Yorkdale Arc-En-Ciel is finished

    Crosstown LRT | Metrolinx

    Only reason this needs to be said was he called the Scarborough LRT proposal a streetcar and he said it was terrible because it was not a subway.

    Ontario Line (was Relief Line South, in Design)

    Or from Alberta or the East Coast where the economy aint doing so well. Win win for everyone?

    Waterfront Transit Reset Phase 1 Study

    That's interesting. If this goes ahead (and I'm not optimistic), it could finish around the same time as the 'planned' opening of the Ontario Line/SSE/EgWest Whomever is Premier at the time will be doing a lot of ribbon cutting

    King Street (Streetcar Transit Priority)

    That's exactly it. The drivers talk. TTC drivers are friendly to their fellow TTC drivers so I'd imagine if the bus driver wanted to pass, the streetcar driver would understand and allow it.

    Roads: GTA West Corridor—Guelph to 400

    That's plausible. Depends on how good the construction companies are at picking up the slack labour. Maybe have to attract people from other provinces to work here.

    There is room to pass on King

    Roads: GTA West Corridor—Guelph to 400

    All the money is not spend in one shot but spread out over years in the budget so it's not as heavy as it sounds. As an example, the current SSE and Eglinton West plans are 6.5 billion more than the original approved LRT plans. For that 6.5 billion, you could likely build the Sheppard LRT, a...

    Roads: GTA West Corridor—Guelph to 400

    I think that's an excuse, comparing 1999 to today, the construction industry can handle building 20x more condos (i made that up), so why not build multiple infrastructure projects at once.

    Roads: GTA West Corridor—Guelph to 400

    I think this is trotted out by successive governments but not true. They can magically blow money on a gas plant scandal yet for the same money could have built the Sheppard LRT. It's a not a limit that stops the government, it is a choice.

    Roads: Ontario/GTA Highways Discussion

    so another way the GTA is subsidizing the rest of the country :S

    Bombardier shopping Downsview Airport facility

    It's not about the city, it's about the GTAH. The population of the GTAH supports 2 teams regardless of where those teams are (within economic constraints)

    Roads: Ontario/GTA Highways Discussion

    I was wondering what leverage the province has as the McGuinty government claimed the contract was rock solid. What if there was a provincial tax on tolls of about $0.25/km? It makes the 407 lose value and then breaking the contract has less penalty???

    Metrolinx: Finch West LRT

    Maybe someone with some knowledge would know but I doubt that it was part of the contract as there was no details about the OL at the time of contract signing to include anything more than a knock out panel.

    TTC: Scarborough Subway Extension (formerly LRT replacement) (City of Toronto, Design Phase)

    Wow, good to hear there is progress. I thought EgWest would end up not getting built. It's something.

    Festival | 188m | 59s | QuadReal | IBI Group

    I was under the impression that the land was sold off and the airport would cease to run. Is that wrong?

    King Street (Streetcar Transit Priority)

    I saw the officers on motorcycles while I was cycling by and they were coming out of nowhere and catching people. I only saw redirects, no tickets though.

    Eglinton East LRT | Metrolinx

    There's only $200 million in actual cash right now. That's not even state of good repair. Where is the rest of the money expected to come from?

    Crosstown LRT | Metrolinx

    TBH, they way it read was that Metrolinx upended the Relief Line, not Ford. It was presented as something that Metrolinx presented to Ford and he ok'd it. OTW, it's likely we would have had the status quo with the relief line. Honestly, I expect a subway to be built for the Ontario line. I...
