lmao omg overreaction muchFunny how mod deleted my post. But I will keep calling Toronto out for its irrational fear and isolationism until I am banned. Even one 6.5 minute bus route serving Islington will cause too much for congestion and confusion for the people of Toronto. It's just typical politics of fear and division, no different what we see down south.
Route 26 only bypass Kipling going west on Dundas to Auckland and then north on Kipling. 26W was on Detour while The new Bloor/Kipling intersection was being rebuilt. A lot of riders for both Toronto/Mississauga get on/off along Burnhamthrope to get to/from Mississauga.What is even happening in this thread anymore?
Looking at the map of MiWay 26, it looks like it already reaches Kipling Station. It would be better to flip the direction of the eastern loop so Mississauga passengers can be dropped off at Kipling and picked up at Islington, but if Islington Station was completely bypassed then there would not be much coverage lost. I imagine in the future the Six Points will become a destination itself.
This construction site is big. Really big.Nov 17
A number of building foundation under construction west of the stair building. There is also shoring taking place toward the north building for X.
The first section of the new tunnel from the terminal toward TTC subway is now bury that will have buses looping over it. 75% of the new tunnel now has walls and 50% has a roof. The roof overhang of the platform and buses has seen another 30' extension add to the main frame and decking on it. The west curb wall is now 100% pour and waiting for steel to cover the loop as a sound barrier.
Lot more up on site
The Hub takes up only a small area, as the rest of the site will be a new configuration of the parking lot that was there before. Everything east of the structure will be TTC parking lot. There is a new road at Acorn that will be the main entrance with traffic lights at Dundas and currently in place. The south lights still have to go in and will happen next year once they start the new road and lot layout.This construction site is big. Really big.
In practical terms, as a resident, it's essentially one more or less contiguous construction site from Pinnacle to Islington, with Pinnacle, KIP 2, Kipling Hub, Dundas/Auckland, Six Points rebuild, then Islington Terrace. It's truly a nightmare as a resident, and terribly unsafe as a pedestrian. There has been ZERO coordination of the disruptions caused by these projects, and for months at a time areas grind to a halt. While, when complete, this may be a proper, urban neighbourhood, in the meantime, it'll be at least a decade of construction.This construction site is big. Really big.
