can you confirm these talks which northern light says are happening behind the scenes providing all day 30 min service on the Milton line in the billion dollar range.There was never a plan to service MCC by rail, but I and other have offer away to do it. There was some talks a decade ago about looking at an bypass to MCC with a few councilors calling for such route between Milton and MCC that went no where.
To do what I have proposed would cost somewhere between $2-3B.
I have no idea when the proposal first surface for a 3rd track in the Milton corridor, but it was to be in place by 2011 if I reminder correctly. By 2007, a 3rd track existed between Humber and Etobicoke Creek as well between Confederation and north of the 403. that service the Kipling and Erindale Station. There was a 3rd track between Cawthra and Hurontario as a storage track that could be upgraded to mainline standards. Don't recalled when ML built the extra bridges over Cawthra to allow for 4 tracks.
Lisgar Station was built as an centre and side platform with CP having 2 tracks on the southside of the existing track for the platform today. A tunnel, stairs and elevators for it was to be added at a future date.
Meadowvale was to see all day service with Milton down the road at some future date.
Wynne 2014 election transit platform call for the Milton Line to be upgrade to 4 tracks with a fly under at Humber at $2b+ and be in service by 2021, with it disappearing after the election.
Mississauga Road Grade Separation is a major issues as the Mill is to remain with service by CP and will require a new road to it as well existing places. This will require a fair number of homes that will have to be remove to do everything that needs to be done. A number of roads in Streetsville will have to be close as there is no way to grade separate them..
The current easy and cheap way to service MCC by rail to to use a Tram-Train using Hurontario LRT line.
The bridge over Hurontario St is supposed to heritage and would see a single track built on both side of it to support a 4 track corridor. ML rebuilt Cooksville station for a 3rd track on the northside of it..
