How will the tie-in for the 403 bridge work? Will the line cross the southbound lanes of Hurontario at-grade or will it rise straight from the guideway?
The official render doesn't show that part but the relative elevations suggest that it will be at-grade.

Looks to me like they might place the crossings at existing intersections, one at Square One drive and the other at the 403 north exit ramp.

Wouldn't the Sq1. Dr. crossing be part of the elevated guideway to the City Centre Terminal station?

Slightly off topic: what is going on with the former Playdium? I recall it shutdown like 2 years ago, and the building was blue. It is now red.
Fully open using a new name

Article is sloppy on its references but people here following the project get the idea.


Has any offer been made by Brampton to shoulder some portion of the costs? They get a brand new set of utilities on these corridors to replace the ancient and crumbling stuff, they could offer to pay for that. Waterloo Region paid a third for Ion phase 1, and the days of free fed/prov funding may be over now with inflation being what it is. Brampton had a window and the old council flushed it, time to put some skin in the game.

For railfans, should be a good opportunities for riding that Halton Sub rare mileage through Milton on VIA.

Why not at least run the GO trains to Long Branch? Then they could run the buses from there if traffic is a problem.
