    TTC: Other Items (catch all)

    Way things are and the lack of leadership, ppl are leaving the sinking ship once they get their 25 years or a better paying job. Everyone I knew at TTC have all left in the last 5 years. Another monthly meeting I don't go to anymore for the last 5 years or speak at.

    $9.1B Crosstown LRT mega-contract comes in under ... In November 2019, Crosslinx informed Metrolinx that it expected the line not to be completed before May 6, 2022, and that the construction costs would total $12.58 billion, an increase of $330 million over previous estimates.

    Metrolinx: Finch West LRT

    No, as they would do a back and forth on a single track using one or 2 car set until the crossovers can be used. Downside is that you can only have one on the line at a time. From what I understand, this took place for the east section when the first few cars arrived.

    Metrolinx: Finch West LRT

    I did the same thing the last time I drove the route as roads were still being built. The remaining of the year will see less crossing of the track areas to allow tracks to be built where they are currently missing. From your photo, the road is mainly built and looks like Islington area or the...

    Metrolinx: Finch West LRT

    Road paving has no bearing on testing the line and don't expect real testing will get underway this year. If real testing starts in January or February, the line could be in service by June or sooner. It could be later depending when testing starts. There maybe some testing this year to do the...

    Land acknowledges has become standard for all committees that I have sat on as well the ones today, Councils also acknowledge it at the beginning of any meeting and I have no problem with it as they were here before anyone first visited the land let alone we live here now. As for Metrolinx...

    Mississauga Dixie Rd/QEW New Interchange (MTO, 1s, AECOM)

    Once the piers are pour for it. Expect it will be place in the next 2 weeks. The photo shows I assume is a missing pier at the north sound barrier wall like the south one and work still taking place on the pier north of the missing one. Hard to say if forming is taking place on the south ramp...

    TTC/Metrolinx: Scarborough Subway Extension

    You need space to store X and that is something TTC doesn't have for streetcars or buses. Until Wilson was built, TTC had no yard space to store subway cars. You can take a section of the existing ROW for the SRT and fence it off as a display area with tracks, but need to be close that the...

    I love how they talked about a crossover platform for Renforth station for the Transitway. That is no simple connect or modification to the current station. Did someone forget that there are bus ramps and bus layover bays on the north side of the current station??? If you are only using the...

    I am not aware of it as its a funding issue just like the West Credit Garage. It has been a poor setup for decades and long over due for a full rebuilt. The West Credit/Meadowvale garage has been on the book well over 10 years and long over due. One reason the fleet hasn't grown regardless of...

    I know for a fact that Mississauga cars will have all the issues fix that Ottawa cars have before they arrive. The first car was to arrive by year end, but no OS in place at the complex and the test line will not be completed until Q2 2024 at this time. Expect to see the delivery delay since...
