Weekend Roundup



The DVP is currently closed between the 401 and the Gardiner Expressway. If you’re heading downtown, why not consider taking transit?

Howard Moscoe and the York University administrators don’t seem to get along very well. They’ve already exchanged harsh words over the details of the TTC’s plan to build a $40 million bus only road to the institution, and now recent moves by York University has Moscoe questioning whether there’s a need to extend the Spadina subway north. Moscoe notes that he’s speaking in his capacity as a city councillor, and not as the chairman of the TTC. (Toronto Star)

Weston residents are celebrating a move by GO Transit to bump up its environmental assessment from a Class B to a Class C. The move, demanded by opponents to the Blue 22 line, increases the depth and breadth of the study, at a cost of $1 million and time. Weston resident Mike Sullivan noted at the GO Board of Directors meeting earlier this week that GO could save the additional cost of this assessment if it proceeded with its 1994 EA (which didn’t include the Blue 22 Airport link) and started digging its improvements to the Georgetown line.

At its commissioners meeting this past Wednesday, the TTC approved a contract to install video monitors at its stations despite criticism that the monitors had too much ad space and not enough information. OneStop Communications is paying the TTC $775,000 for the right to install the monitors and sell ad space. After seven years, the monitors would become the property of the TTC. Commissioners nixed Moscoe’s motion to increase the terms of the contract, adding 70 monitors and $1 million in revenues to the TTC. (Toronto Star)
