I mostly agree, especially on the land use part and how the Ford's sold land that was prime for some elevated rapid transit.Eglinton West was to been elevated on the side of the road with flyover over major intersections along with a cycling trail beside it. That was before the Fords got the land sold off to their friendly developers.
Why is it that Europe has no issues running on the surface either in an ROW or mix traffic?? Most roads are single lanes in most cases.
Just think how much more of track can be built on the surface with the same amount of money putting the line underground for a shorter section as well having it up and running years before the tunnel is ready for use.
A lot of the board member are fix on speed considering most riders don't go from end to end in the first place. It to service the local and mid needs.
Tunnels are needed where surface area can't support the needs of an surface line in the first place or where there is a long distance between stops
However my point was that you can take literally any position and make it seem like it's being done for the benefit of car owners, like can we just move on from this strawman that we bury our transit because we want to appease some car owners who don't want to see trams running on the street? If you want to make ridiculous points that call the opposing side pro car, we can literally sit here all day.
