Toronto’s Once-Ambitious Subway Plans Scaled Back (Again) – News

“What was pitched by Tory in 2014 as a 22-stop rapid surface rail route has been reduced to just five stations as of this week, according to a newly-published report set to go before the city’s Executive Committee on January 27,” reports Lauren O’Neil.

In the most recent setback for the original scope of the program, two potential stations—Gerrard-Carlaw and Lawrence-Kennedy—were axed due to conflicts with the provincial subway program championed by Premier Doug Ford. The remaining tops are planned for locations on existing GO corridors.

Ben Spurr also reports on the evolution of the SmartTrack program in a paywalled article for the Toronto Star.
