Ye its weird that the lrt doesn't pass through the most dense part of Mississauga DT. I agree with your point ok the DT as well, the streets are always so empty outside of SQ1.

Permanent traffic signals have been installed at the intersections from Matheson to Brunel/Sandstone. No transit signals yet. Milverton/Watline:

I'm confused - what is the future light-rail project? This is necessary for the current project isn't it. Are there thoughts of a different configuration if they run further south onto Lakeshore?
This bridge is require to allow the LRV's to get on/off Hurontario St easier and while being a true intersection with traffic lights compare to where the current bridge and the traffic lights are.

The City Staff wanted the LRT to remain on Hurontario to the Lakeshore as it was easier, but the NIMBY's group got the line kill south of the Port Credit Station to where the station will it be located now.

The plan had call for the LRT to go south to Port St and then west to the end of it in the heart of Port Credit. This would service the redevelopment of the Marina Lands that has gone no where in years. When the redevelopment of the ESSO land surface, the idea was to take the line over the Credit River either to the south end or on Lakeshore. Since Lakeshore is a bottleneck at the best of times the NIMBY's group wanted it underground. This one case I agree with them as its the only major road south of the QEW that can cross the river and become a nightmare when the QEW becomes a parking lot or has issues. Then there are special events that close the road for it.

The south send of the Port Credit Station will allow an extension to the south if it every got off the ground.

Master plan calls for an LRT line to Long Branch and connect to TTC system as well to the ESSO land. The extension to TTC system will never happen due to gauge issue. Unless TTC line is rebuild to standard gauge from Long Branch to Park Lawn Loop where the loop will have to be dual gauge, it will never happen.

That's the current project. Your post mentioned a future project.

The future plan was part of the current plan, but only to Port Credit

Some version of this plan makes just a whole lot of sense. You have bridge issues at the Humber and the Credit River, but room for bridge expansion. Whether you bring the streetcar west or the LRT east, the connections between Brightwater (in the west) (where there is, I believe, an original station building connected to the interurban street railway that ran through PC into the 1930's, and then became a bus service, just to the west of the Brightwater site), an LRT Station near or adjacent to Port Street, and the Humber Loop makes a lot of sense. East of PC there is a lot of width to Lakeshore, making for a separated surface (or elevated?) line eminently possible. I would assume trackage through PC would be some form of tunnel or combination of tunnel and bridge? The amount of intensification that can (and is) going to take place along the Lakeshore Corridor (both in Etobicoke and Mississauga) calls out for a higher level of transit for more local connections, supported by GO through major connection points. This form of transit would only speed up the process.

The only way an LRT can exist in Port Credit is underground from Cawthra to west of Mississauga Rd. Both sides of this tunnel has enough room to have an surface ROW. Even if you remove all on street parking on PC, there is no room for an ROW and would have to be in mix traffic because of traffic needs. In time, there will be enough density in the east to support an LRT, but not in the west without major changes like tearing down parts of subdivision that back onto the lakeshore on the north side an various parts on the southside where they exist next to parks..

A friend of mine took the GO and said the Port Credit push box is pushed into place now. Can anyone confirm?
They may just be setting up and testing the equipment in advance of this weekend's work.

Of course, they've since cancelled this weekend's work, so the set-up is all for naught.
