    Mississauga Hurontario-Main LRT | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx

    Not in the plan at this time There is even the thought of having the line split in 2, but would require platforms for the intersection just like it is today for route 2 and 17 with extra travel time up to 15 minutes.. Since they are only planning on running one car LRV with service 8-12...

    Mississauga Hurontario-Main LRT | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx

    Oh!! that's a great Idea, but only add extra travel time for those who want to bypass the area to get to/from Cooksville GO Station and home at the Eglinton area or those going to/from Dundas to the industry area north of the 401. I guess Bonney will come up with the extra cost to build this...

    TTC: Other Items (catch all)

    This is what you get when one hand doesn't know what the other one is doing. Plan was to have track in place for the closure, but someone miss the waterline work that has delay the trackwork.

    Toronto Love Park | 3m | 1s | City of Toronto

    You have to look at the City for cutting funding or saying there is no money for x in the plan that could be improved on for a few things for the park. Been involved not only with this park from day one as well a number of other ones on the Waterfront, the city is their own worse enemy for not...

    Mississauga 1100 Burnhamthorpe Road West | ?m | ?s | SmartCentres

    Both crossing have been on the books well over a decade or more for grade separation, but both the city and CP dragging their feet due to cost. They are on Metrolinx hit list that needs to be grade separated for years alone with a number more along the line. Like or not, various areas are zone...

    Given the fact that there is no money for QQE, let along the Cherry St LRT extension. you may see the new tunnels around 2032-35 or beyond those dates. With the OL work taking place, the signal tower move is not on the radar at this time unless ML deems it should be more to deal with the...

    Google map is a year old for the area to see what is new this year. If one of the dome folks could take some aerial shots, it would help to see where things stand today for the bridges.
