What are you talking about? The Canada Line has a current capacity of ~6000 passengers per hour per direction (pphpd) with a max capacity of 15,000 if expanded to 3 car trains with less than 2 minute frequencies; Eglinton would have an estimated capacity of ~15000 pphpd without tinkering with longer trains and higher frequencies than currently planned. Eglinton has wider diameter tunnels (among many of the differences between it and the Canada Line), while in Vancouver the Canada line has a smaller tunnel diameter.Although Canada line capacity is greater than Eglinton.
- Canada Line cost $110M/km for 9 km tunnel and 10 km elevated.
- Eglinton cost $280M/km for 11 km tunnel and 8 km at-grade in-median.
Very true, but it wouldnt be that much of a difference if it was 2 sets of tracks because Vancouver/Richmond actually planned how it would integrate into the street fabric.There is only one set of tracks on this elevated structure. They didn't want twice as much cluster.
