Maybe they should be laying streetcar tracks now between Queen Street and Peel Avenue, instead of later (which would involve closing the center of Dufferin Street under the railway... again).
Need approved EA to do that. Since there isn't one, not going to happen.

Why would TTC spend money for a line that goes no where and would have to be rebuilt before it happen???

I'm sick and tired of you going out of your way to disagree with my posts -- all you had to do was read the article.
??? I simply asked how. Someone already answered. There's no need for your hostility and rudeness. I'm sick and tired of your rudeness! I don't think I've disagreed with one of your posts for months. Not that I pay much attention to who I'm replying to.

Months later, Dufferin has reopened and work up top is done… it's just that what's up top won't be opened itself for a while. The widening will allow the laying of another track in the Kitchener/Milton/Barrie/UP Express corridor, while on this side of a sound wall there's a new piece of the West Toronto Railpath just waiting for extensions to be completed both to the northwest and to the southeast. Here's how it looked yesterday evening:

I'm really glad that this is finished. It is good in so many ways.

But that safety screen over the roadway just looks....lame.

Lets's hope it gets improved in years to come.

They are finally working on the park. Work started almost a month ago.
