This has been thrown around during various EA meetings behind close doors and it been all over the place depending on who running Planning and Service as well CEO for TTC.Do we know how Broadview streetcar service is going to be operated once this is built? I can't imagine service on the 505 and 504 staying the same. They could maybe reroute the 505 onto Gerrard to Main with the 506 and then run a new line all the way down Broadview from Danforth to Commissioners?
The long range sees a Broadview line going over the shipping channel and loop on the north side of the channel in the short term or connecting to the Commissioner Line to loop at the Leslie Barns
TTC has land at Queen and Broadview to build a loop for the 504 and still allow 505 to run as is.
Then there the thought of taking 505 along Dundas to Carlaw and then to Main Station or X.
The Broadview extension will start to wash thing out, but a lot of the board members will be gone before streetcar service makes it way south at the current rate things gets done by TTC.
The Master Plan started in 2004 with a vision of taking Broadview south that had the RR storage yard in place as well getting south of Eastern Ave. 2008-2010 EA's saw a real chance to get to Commissioner with the RR yard being remove, but being flying very little these days since 2010. Has got some talk during other EA's for land use, but mostly talk.
At this time, the only talk taking place is about QQE extension as well where the streetcar loop maybe considering the line to Lower Parliament St is close to 10 years late opening at this time. May see it by 2030 considering the plan January meeting has yet to happen that was supposed to be done a few months ago.
I don't expect to see the Ontario Line up and running before 2035 considering the idea and approved plan is now 112 years old.
As for street width. it will be along the lines of QQ and no greater than the existing road north of Eastern.
