The ridership modelling (which included new developments) for the route is well within LRT capacity. If you go back and check it out, it's no where near the top end of capacity.Kind of unrelated to the grass topic currently going on (which look great btw).... Is anyone else concerned about capacity issues on the Eglinton LRT within the end of the decade? Another 10 towers proposed a few days ago between 42-52 stories at eglinton and wynford. Also another development on the south west corner of don mills and eglinton got proposed yesterday (see link below) we don't know the number of towers but would be a safe bet it will be at least 10 of them considering the space there.
Ontario Line realistically won't be in place till early 2030s. Overcrowding on the Eglinton LRT will be the norm with perhaps busses during peak hours lol? I also guess they won't have an option and will need to make it grade separated with serious signal priority until Don Mills... we still don't know how many condos will be built on the South East of the intersection yet that development project is probably ramping up in the background before they submit their apps.
Nothing feels more like driving into or out of Toronto from the north like being flanked by hundreds of drab-looking corporate office buildings alo...www.blogto.com
It takes around 3-5 years after breaking ground for people to move into a building. With the DRL running around 2030 I don't see there being any problem with capacity throughout this Crosstown within the next couple decades.
