And if one think uploading equate to a process free from political interference, all they need to acquaint themselves with is why the province chose to fund Spadina extension, or build a station at Kirby.
City, TTC and Metrolinx staff are working to prepare the draft Environmental Project Report (EPR) to launch the TPAP in 2018. This work is happening concurrently with work on the conceptual design. The EPR and conceptual design report are nearing completion. Preliminary design, including geotechnical, tunnels, stations and systems, is getting underway. A report to City Council on preliminary design is planned for Q4 2019.
But they aren't know, that's the problem. The province is failing everyone, not just Toronto.Regional, sure. Provincial? No. The priorities of cities like Niagra Falls and Orillia will be prioritized because of political reasons. The TTC works extremely well with what it has, be careful what you wish for.
Stricly funding. Unforetunately, these type of decisions are made at all levels, and sometimes they have lasting ramifications.And if one think uploading equate to a process free from political interference, all they need to acquaint themselves with is why the province chose to fund Spadina extension, or build a station at Kirby.
I think of 3 RT systems I have ridden besides the TTC. Montreal Metro, Boston's MBTA and San Diego Trolley. They all have multiple lines. They all are (mainly) grade separated. All lines go downtown. Some interline, some do not, but they all go to the city centre. Toronto's line 2 has failed to be successful due to it not going downtown. If they had jogged it down to Queen and then back up, that would have changed this.
So who's going to build it, and with what budget? And why should Downtowners have to pay for persons not even in Toronto suburbs to travel subsidized?For those suggested a DRL (or any of the subway) should be under some other fare system, you’re bonkers
but the questions are valid. Since you like the term "bonkers" for persons you don't agree with on this, then feel absolutely free to muse as to how it's going to be paid for.The problem in Toronto has been the building of subways on Sheppard and now to Vaughan while critical overcrowding developed on downtown routes.
