    Metrolinx: Finch West LRT

    Ok though, where is this clear, unequivocal commitment. I'm not defending MX, I'm saying that out of anyone, us UT'ers should be able to dig up those statements by going through the early pages of the thread, and finding links to stuff that's still active, or picking it up from the Wayback...

    Was this a freight train in the Willowbrook area?

    I guess the fact that they're still as white as printer paper is making me recoil. A few years of grime will make them look better, I'm sure. Great find @crs1026!

    Speculative at best.

    Who chose the font? They look like they're stripped from the back of a sports jersey.

    Rail Deck Park (?, ?, ?)

    Some points from my reading: This was a hearing on the City's OPA (395), and the merits of the CRAFT development were not considered at all. There was a bunch of clarification needed around the fact that the OMB changed to the LPAT during this case (Attachment 1), and they had to seek a court...

    Point for: I think you guys are underestimating the fact that John Tory needs a legacy project for his timid status quo mayoralty. Point against: ain't no provincial funding coming for this project.

    From the materials: vs. what I drew up in Post 1: Right off the bat the setbacks from Harbour Street don't look appropriate. Otherwise, two towers looks managable, they'll just be skinny things though.

    I can tell you it was quite cool in the centre moat today, so that would back that up.

    Well my kid woke up before 6 this morning, so we managed to take a walk and head down to Union for some pics. Gotta say I didn't realize how open and spacious the West Moat was, holy cow it's huge! I guess that will be taken up by tables and cairs once it's no longer the only route to/from...

    I had a thought; with the fact that it's called the TD Carriageway, I'm wondering if it would be a line of ATMs.

    It's marked as a retail space from what I can gather. Not a lot of space to work with tho...

    Not sure if this involves any mainline work that benefits GO, but work in the Guelph Junction area came to a head this morning, resulting in a protest and blockade. ‘Unacceptable’: Mayor responds to train noise complaints

    Rail Deck Park (?, ?, ?)

    Agreed with all the points at least north of Imperial Street. It's just sad that this won't be considered in conjunction with upzoning the adjacent lands. Between Imperial and Chaplin (aka Davisville east of Yonge), it gets a little more complicated because the right-of way widens, and you have...

    GO Transit: Service thread (including extensions)

    I have to agree. The CP Ritson Road station is still a good click and a half southeast of Oshawa's core, and nestled in low density housing (even if there are new developments in the pipe. Moving it south wouldn't make a huge difference in that regard. What I would like to see is a different...

    Ctrl-C, Ctrl-V: So something we already know. Yeah, you can shim a third track in there. It's just gonna be messy and expensive. The real question is if the province will bother. Given the petty vengence we've seen so far, not gonna happen while Brown is mayor.

    Inserting mandatory lamenting that finishing the middle of the Front Street Moat wasn't a higher priority. Sorry for being a broken record.
