York Region Page

Friday, January 14th, 2011

I have finally updated the York Region Options page.

I provide two alternatives to building 4 km of subway between Steeles and Highway 7. The first keeps an LRT line underground for that portion of Yonge Street, but my preferred option is to come above ground just above Steeles (assuming an underground across-the-platform transfer with the subway).

This proposal provides 21 km of LRT for the same $1.4 billion the 4 km of subway would cost. This includes 10 km on Yonge between Steeles and Elgin Mills (including a 1 km tunnel north of Major Mac) and 11 km east-west line from Centre at Dufferin to Highway 7 at Woodbine.

York Region Options Are Coming

Friday, January 7th, 2011

I had planned to provide an updated York Region Options page before the new year. However, I found while working on the new page that the Cost Comparison page needed to be brought up to date first.

Now that that has been done, I can get on with finishing up the new York Region Options page.
