considering that TTC has been asked to hack and slash their budgets... every dollar here and there couldve been useful...remember theres plenty of emergency exits scattered across the line... they really shouldve stuck with a cookie cutter design for something so minor in significance. Hopefully for the ECT they will be more sensible. Youre probably going to say it was too late in construction to have made that change but it just goes to show the spending culture of TTC..... misplaced priorities....
and the giant mausoleums stations will serve as a reminder....but then somebody is probably going to throw in NYC for example or some other city with beautiful stations....well...they have money...we dont....we cant afford oppulance over function at this age
I doubt cheapening out on emergency exists or this project would have helped TTC with their budget woes.
Who told you NYC has money? Last I checked the MTA running New York's transit system was loaded with huge debts:
Where is all this money they have? They just recognize that good design is worth it.
