im pretty sure the concepts were there during the design stage when ML took over. i would be amazed if the stops are a design build. remember this line was part of a wider TC plan so it wouldve made sense to make all surface stops the same design where possible. Sheppard had no intention of going closed heated shelters when construction started so judging by that it would be reasonable to assume that tc had no intentions as well.I can't imagine that the surface shelters were at any stage of design many years ago when the project was taken over. And unless you meant the Eglinton West LRT, Ford did not bury part of this line, it was always planned this way.
