    Do you know what the area looked like 5-10 years ago and what it looks like today?? Have you compare what the area is today against today Mimico area?? You realize there is more development plan for Minico area, but doesn't come close to what maybe plan for the Kraft site?? Mimico is a crew change point. I said in 2007 when asked by Metrolinx if I saw more stations on the current system and said yes. Most of them being walk in stations with GO operating a different service to these station that would be shorter than the current ones. So you see, screw 1,000's of new riders so it doesn't effect today service?? This should be a 15 minute station.

    I prefer to see a Stadler car than BVG for the next order. Then, CAF is better than BVG car which is what TTC has with various changes. Been on all 3 of them and have videos of them as well, including photos.

    There is no sidewalk there, but there is a Bike lane and 2 lanes of traffic. Where I shot the video of the ROW, no room for pedestrians and only shot there once traffic was clear and there was a red light to the west stopping traffic. That is why I did a short shot before I head across the road as the light just turn green. The rest I shot was from the close bike lane.

    How long has TTC being running streetcars under that underpass as well having to deal with issues from the overpass?? There is your answer to your question. As for TVG & overhead, Metrolinx is doing the same thing today for a number of locations, with more to come in time. You will find the mesh along NEC as well at a number of locations for both trains and subways in the US.

    Can't see 501 streetcars returning to Humber Loop or Long Branch until at least April or May at this time.No idea what was to be done at Long Branch loop, but other than rebuilding the waiting area and new roof shingles, saw nothing at all. 4 buses parked waiting to go into service with one departing when I left.All the overhead is 100% rebuilt up to Park Lawn.Bike lanes with bump out transit stops has been built on the south side east of McD and not sure where it has stop that will see more work in the spring going east. High curb with large gaps between them have been built to keep traffic off the bikes lanes, but cars can get in these gaps areas easy.Most of the Lake Shore is complete for the new tracks east of Park Lawn as well allowing traffic to go west of the underpass, but concrete is not pour for the rails west of the underpass for a block and no rails in the underpass.All of the Queensway ROW is 100% done, with bracket support added to the support poles east of Windermere, but missing overhead as well power line. Poles and brackets are missing west of Windermere Ave to Humber Loop. Construction barriers on the Humber Bridge were being remove with only the eastbound ones to be remove. The last westbound barrier was being removed when I drove by.The new substation is in place and being wired.The power line tower in the loop area going east has been removed.Looks like there is going to be a loop to loop where the old eastbound was or another bypass track going east, but not finish. They were working on the track going into the underpass, with a lot of missing tracks for the whole loop.This video will show what has been done so far as of Jan 15

    King Street pilot project has been a phenomenal success — and brought challenges, to be sure

    There was only one set of temporary lights installed on Eglinton and that was on the west side of Etobicoke Creek in Mississauga to allow the 100's buses entrance/exit to the Transitway. Temporary lights were installed in Toronto for rebuilding of a few intersection and had no interference on traffic at all. In some places, traffic was shift to allow building underpass bridges for the Transitway with the city getting new rebuilt roads and sideways.

    There a report going to General Committee on Jan 17 calling for a new Transit Hub where the Playdium Amusement Centre is currently located, as while the LRT, Transitway, transit and the Milton Line. I have being calling for a new hub for 15 years in a new location to handle both MT, BT and GO service as well 150,000 riders a day. Current terminal was built for 25,000 and expanded to 50,000, not including GO service.
