We went to London back on July 2nd, and traffic on that highway even west of Highway 403 is still very decent, but I do agree it does need some widening within the next few decades.They need to do something with rails by 2040 as the current road system will not handle another 2.5 million cars for the 3.5 million new residents to Ontario.
It maybe less west of 8, but gets back to being heavy west of the 403 and why bridges are being rebuilt to handle 10 lanes of traffic to London. Then going to be 6 lanes to Windsor and how long before it becomes 4/5 lanes as well??? Even the 403 to Hamilton can handle up to 10 lanes in the future until it hit Hamilton..
Time for ML to become the Southern Ontario Transit Authorly Like I been calling for over a decade to deal with transit from Windsor to Kingston.
Will cost big bucks to upgrade both CP and CN lines to handle 250-300 km trains with a lot of 2/3 tracks in place of 1 track being added.
Need to make London and Hamilton Hubs with service going to smaller towns/cities that will feed into service to Toronto.
Just uploaded videos I shot in June for the plan location of the New woodbine GO Station
