SmarterTracks - Scarborough - Phase IV - 4th DRAFT

The 3rd draft of Phase IV of my SmarterTracks plan for Scarborough included the following:
- An LRT between Ellesmere GO and UTSC connecting with Scarborough Town Centre, Scarborough Centre, and Rouge Valley/Centenary Hospital
- An elevated rapid transit line [Monorail or HERT (High-capacity elevated rapid transit)] along Lawrence Avenue East and Kingston Road between Lawrence GO and Highway 2 at Sheppard and Kingston Road

Due to much resistance (and some very valid commentary) this 4th draft replaces the elevated rapid transit line an LRT - This revision also adds a bypass track along Ellesmere to allow LRT trains to bypass STC and the Scarborough Centre Subway Station if necessary
