The province is carrying out maintenance of long-term plans
Waiting for the city center rescue line to replace the current version with the Ontario line
State Council Prime minister Doug Ford announced on Wednesday that it would go further than the city\'s vision and be completed two years in advance.
Ford promised a $28 crown jewel \". 5-
The billion transport announcement will use lighter rail technology and will be completed by 2027.
But what exactly is this, what does this mean for already crowded morning commutes?
The star broke down some of the biggest problems in Wednesday\'s traffic news.
What is the Ontario line? The 15-
The kilometer line will extend from the Ontario Science Center station in crostdon, Eglington, north, to Ontario square/exhibition in the southwest, connecting with Queen and Osgoode radio on Line 1 of TTC, contact Pape on Line 2.
This replaces the proposed mitigation line, and roughly doubles it, which is planned by the city to relieve pressure from the crowded Metro line 1, and will go from Pape to Osgoode station in the first phase.

There is another question to get there, how is this technology different from the city\'s relief line proposal?
According to the province, the Ontario line will not be the traditional TTC Metro line as the relief line.
These cars will be smaller, automated, and they will travel a route on elevated tracks, such as through the Tang River.
The Ford government said that although cars would be smaller, their peak capacity would be similar to the existing line 1 Subway, which could transport 400,000 passengers per working day to provide relief for passengers on the line.
Matti bhariatycki, interim director at T City College, said that if automated, these cars could be closer, which could address concerns about insufficient capacity for small cars.
How about this plan compared to other transportation projects in Toronto?
Eglinton Crosstown, if it is open as scheduled in 2021, it will take 10 years to complete, it is using public-private-partnership —
The province says this can also be used on the Ontario line as a way to speed up the project

There will be a kilometer-long light rail line along Eglington Avenue.

Kennedy station underground and ground, fully funded by the province.
It is owned by Metrolinx and will be operated by TTC.
Has this technology been used elsewhere?
Yes, for example, on the Canadian line in Vancouver, part of the city\'s air traffic system, which runs mostly underground.

The railway system that provides services to the port area re-developed at the east end of the city.
But Steven Faber, associate professor of human geography at the University of T Scarborough, said he was concerned that the technology in the province\'s overall transportation plan \"did not match\", which brought lower capacity light rail to the most densely populated areasdowntown —
There are also traditional underground subways leading to low-density suburbs such as Richmond Hill and Scarborough.
When will it be built?
The Ford government said it could build a new Ontario line by 2027, which would be two years ahead of the city\'s scheduled shorter rescue line time.
The province believes that lines using smaller trains are easier to build, eliminating tunnels on some lines will be able to build as cheaply and faster as using public transport
Procurement of private partnerships operated using TTC technology is not required and funds are invested in it in advance.
It may take a while for the small train, but he needs to see more details, Farber said.
There are ways to speed things up, says bhariatycki, such as the compelling utility that Ford mentioned in the announcement.
This basically means using provincial power to complete work on sewer and utility lines before the excavation work begins.
But, \"I think in general, unless there is a truly revolutionary technology, how long will it take for tunnel engineering to work,\" said bhariatycki . \".
Provincial Transportation authority Metrolinx estimates that it will take two and a half years to buy the Ontario line, and it will take about five years.
How much is it?
The province estimates that the Ontario route will cost $10. 9 billion.
It also plans to build extension lines for $5.
6 billion, three-
Stop the Scarborough Metro expansion for $5.
5 billion, the basement of Eglinton Crosstown extends to Pearson Airport for $4. 7 billion.
Earlier this week, the prime minister announced his transit plan for $28. 5-
But the province clarified on Wednesday that it contributed only $11.
2 billion, the rest is made up of the federal government, the Toronto and York regions.
Bhariatycki warned that the cost of these large projects is often higher than originally predicted.
\"Money is a big problem,\" he said . \"
What about the work and money that has gone to the old Relief line?
Somiatycki said that some of the city\'s plans can be built on it, depending on whether the Ontario line follows the same route as the relief line, and it is not clear yet.
There have been years of research and planning work on the city\'s relief line plan, and the city says the shaft construction of the tunnel rig needed to build the line could start a year later next year.
There was a lot of debate about the route to the relief line, \"We spent a lot of money trying to decide,\" he said . \".
If the same route is used in the province, \"then some of these jobs can be reused or even reused.
\"How many stations will there be?
There appeared to be seven stops on the map released by the province on Wednesday, but the province said it had not finalized.
Both bhariatycki and Farber said that it was positive that the line would extend north to the Ontario Science Center, as it could allow the Metro to enter Fleming Park and Thorncliff until the second phase of the relief line, they will get it.
But it is not clear whether there will be nearby stations in these communities.
