Supporting Suburban/Downtown Subway Relief (S+DRL) line

As a party we always listen to the experts. We must listen to the experts calling on us to prioritize transit development in the GTA. Investing in Scarborough subway before the S+DRL is there to relieve the Yonge Street Subway line is foolish and while Liberals invest in Transit if we invest in the wrong transit we aren't helping. The right reasonable and responsible approach to transit.

    Running a Subway or LRt down PAPE is stupid...

    Intensifcation is supposed to occur west of the don valley - why build transit east. there is no north-0south transit in the core between yonge and the DVP. What is needed is a transit line down jarvis or parliament..

    connect it to the subway at castle frank, then up to don mills road through throncliffe park.

    1. ...except for the fact that all the experts are saying that Pape is the way to go: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Downtown_Relief_Line

  2. The DRL is part of the Big Move and will be funded by the Transit Taxes. The Provincial government already supports the idea and plans to give $7.4 billion towards it's construction.

  3. I would suggest calling the DRL the Don Mills/Weston line and have it run from Finch/Don Mills, through Flemington Park and Thorncliffe Park(where there is already the population density for a subway), south along King or Queen, and then up along Weston Road (or nearby) to Finch. I don't think it will take much strain off of the Yonge line unless you start it at Sheppard as the Yonge line is already overloaded by the time it reaches Eglinton.

  4. If and when the Relief Line gets built, I think it will be done in phases. The first phase will be from St. Andrew's station via King to Pape Station. The second phase may go up to Eglinton and Don Mills. The third phase will connect St. Andrews to Dundas West via King and Roncesvalles.
