Not sure if we are talking interim or final.I mean like this, it would poor planning to build a separate guideway 100m apart, and they couldn't justify it being built, especially when it's not serving any stops. This part could easily be interlined.
- Interim alignment here is for the King Line to come down from Scarborough and interline with the Ontario Line down Pape.
- Ultimately, I think there will be enough riders coming down from Scarborough and down from Fairview, that there wouldn't be the capacity to interline through Thorncliffe. Creating an interchange station helps connectivity, so I took the opportunity to create one here. That is why I set up parallel tracks - it could also create a 4 track, 2 platform (southbound and northbound) station with a cross-platform transfer for travelling in the same general direction.
They are close for a very short stretch - mostly because that is a convenient lcoation for both lines to shift towards the northwest.I don't see both lines being built so close to each other... if anything maybe keep the King line on Dufferin.
I see the Spadina leg of the Y-Line choking off a Dufferin subway routing. Essentially, the Dufferin subway would have to stop at Yorkdale, and it would provide no real added coverage. I chose it going over to Keele, but I could live with going through Mount Dennis to Jane and up Jane.
Thanks.I like a lot of other ideas in the map though.
