The project was appropriately dubbed the”Ontario Line,” and will comprise links from Osgoode to Pape Station, which has been a part of the town’s original Downtown Relief Line plans. The target of the metro line stays the same: to reduce stoppages and overcrowding over the TTC.
” We all know that the congestion on Line 1 is a disaster,” the Ontario Premier told reporters Wednesday morning, according to BlogTO. “Commuters are sandwiched, shoulder-to-shoulder in the stage at Bloor Station using over-capacity trains speeding by. It’s a clear health and safety problem, and without actions it is only going to get worse.”
It is a historical day at Ontario! I am pleased to unveil our transit vision — a strategy for the 21st century!

The PC administration asserts the Ontario Line can be constructed quicker compared to Relief Line by two years, using a projected ending date of 2027. This is a daring claim thinking about the new subway job is the amount of the Relief Line in 15 km.
In an effort to”get Ontarians moving,” Doug Ford has announced that he has scrapping Relief Line plans in favor of a fresh $10.9-billion transit job . The program will see a new subway line run from west of downtown at Ontario Place/Exhibition all of the way in North York.

On Wednesday afternoon, Mayor John Tory responded to the Ford administration’s new transit announcement. While Tory stated he insists that there is a need for transit to Ontario Place, he stated he has questions about the way the PC government will use technology to speed up the procedure for creating the new lineup, Daily Hive reports.
