SmarterTracks - Relief Line

Apr. 12, 2017

I have abandoned the idea of merging the city's two proposals for the Leslieville portion of the Relief Line [Carlaw or Pape (as shown in green in the map below)] in favour of the Carlaw route - I was originally under the impression that the location of the station in the Pape proposal was a better fit for connecting with SmartTrack, but I have since learned that the city's preference is for a hub connecting with SmartTrack and surface transit at Carlaw and Gerrard
