    On the west side, it goes into a tunnel that emerges somewhere around the traffic circle.
    People don't freak out about LRT infrastructure in the river valley, do they? I thought it was considered "green". Was there much concern when the SE section was slated to go through Muttart and around the ski/fringe area? I don't know, I'm asking.
    That bridge is the most contentious issue of the line and heavily lobbied against for numerous reasons. Riverdale was, as always, particularly vocal.

    Don't worry. Before too long we'll have a train that does the same thing.

    I like the parkade at the station. This is something they should have at Century Park, Ellerslie, Clairview and Belvadere instead of a big field of parking lot.

    Not accurate. You forget that this is a COE project. Can't do a decent gold plated parking stall for under $170,000 plus 2% for artwork.

    How long would it take to collect enough revenue to pay for the 50k per stall?

    A very long time. Especially since drivers want free parking to take transit or they will simply drive their Lexus's right to downtown.

    Most ETS parking stalls are free and only a portion can be reserved for $50/month. With lot maintenance and all the unpaid stalls, costs are never, ever recovered. They are a hidden transit subsidy.
