You're salty I'm not following the academic pro development circlejerk!
You're rude, as exemplified above.
By now, you should know, I don't follow anyone else's drumbeat, and more than most members here, I have some patience for the views of those who like their neighbourhoods as they are or want to protect their view etc.
I also believe, however, that the needs of the many out weigh the needs of the few or the one, on balance, most of the time.
In this area traffic and running errands has been hell for the last 3 years!!!
Kipling ave was torn down to the dirt to replace the concrete and asphalt so the entire street was 1 lane in each direction from steeles to finch.
The road was re-designed to get people to speed less, but this means in the winter the bus and trucks/SUV's end up coming into the 2nd lane due to the slush/snow in the curbs.
It takes 20+ mins to get through highway 27 and humber college boulevard, and none of the signs are correct! There has been signs for months pointing to lanes that don't exist.
Then for years they made the area around kipling and finch one lane.
Every time something is touched here it makes it worse overall in my experience! And not an ounce of sympathy from people here.
The Finch LRT has been under construction, as was Kipling, you were expecting this to be a 'walk in the park'.
Construction is disruptive and annoying and taking place all over the City and Region. Kipling is done, Finch will be finished soon.
Judge the final product.
I don't know why you would expect 'sympathy'; others on this forum are dealing w/the construction related to the Ontario Line; or the mess in the east end this summer with closures on Broadview, Coxwell and at Main Station; Hurontario has been under construction in Mississauga for ages and so on and so on.
Beyond that, you're not widely liked here, because you come on here only to bash, never to compliment, never to share actual news; and your commitment to being factual is not particularly steadfast either.
I've followed the development at dixie mall and the traffic is insane! The residents are not happy either, but I guess all that matters is the opinions of people here who'll never suffer the consequences of the changes they want to see.
This is just like the streetcars on the west end. They're going to be closed for most of a decade, but every time I complain people here hand wave away
The above is such nonsense. Where do you think UT members live? Most of us have projects across the street from us or down the block, we ride the same TTC, and GO systems, drive the same highways, and navigate the same closures as anyone else.
