TTC: Easier Access Phase III

The TTC could have created an underground walkway to Greenwood Avenue from Linsmore Crescent, such that Greenwood station actually has an entrance/exit to the street it is named after.
They could have. But that solves the aesthetic problem of having a station named for a street that has no entrance on said street. Based on the diagrams above, it does little for safety. I'd rather have the new entrance provide significant safety improvements and front on the Danforth. That would seem to be a better investment.

A private developer might build a 4 storey premises with a knockout panel in the basement to give an opportunity to link up at a later date, but left to the TTC alone, any Danforth frontage is likely to be a single storey single purpose box...

So much for using transit to get to this site. Making sure the accessibility folk don't get a real say on this long over due change.

And I'll follow that with this picture. Hoarding down. Presto gates fired up. Green arrows visible. No more people dashing across Woodbine into the rush hour traffic. (I hope.) Photo from dusk tonight.

Is this picture of the Yorkdale entrance or Ranee?
 
The TTC could have created an underground walkway to Greenwood Avenue from Linsmore Crescent, such that Greenwood station actually has an entrance/exit to the street it is named after.
It would have been very long. They did have a reasonable option to put one on Danforth - which would be a first for the Danforth subway.
