I don't have access to the documents, but the answer is likely, it's the first step.
Yeah RAC is nice, but the way it shows the number of tracks is real sloppy. You have to zoom way it. Makes sense as its a to-scale map though. Also it not only doesnt show upcomimg construction but its out of date; it doesnt show any of the recent tracking on Barrie.^
This map provides the ownership and the amount of tracks in corridor: https://rac.jmaponline.net/canadianrailatlas/
I don't think there's a singular map that shows "currently constructed, under construction, approved".
The map @ShonTron posted a few pages back (see here) had the recently constructed layer for the Kitchener Line between Bramalea and Georgetown.
Proponents who unveiled the plan May 30 at Toronto’s Exhibition Place noted the project would be Canada’s largest ever P3. Infrastructure Ontario has previously said the third-phase procurement could be worth $8- or $9 billion not including a 35-year operations period, which would be valued at billions more.
Speaking of, are there any plans to eliminate the Scarboro St Crossing ? Correct me if I'm wrong, but it's the only at grade crossing between Bramelea and Union left.^ML is doing some intensive maintenance on level crossings along the Kitchener line as well. This work has started and will continue into the fall.
As mundane as this work may sound, it will permit higher track speed, and that will eventually translate into faster timings.
Yes, but the city and Metrolinx are at odds doing it because of the pedestrians. The city wants a tunnel for pedestrians as well traffic, but Metrolinx wants neither. Now this is going back a number of years and haven't seen or heard anymore on it.
