It’s been talked about for decades but might politicians finally have found the will – and funds?
The  Wynne government’s announced it’ll contribute over $150-million for the planning and design of the so-called downtown relief subway line.
Crowded Subway
Transportation Minister Steven Del Duca says staff from the two levels of government will meet in the coming weeks to get the wheels in motion.
Neither Queen’s Park nor city hall indicating if this means the line will be built quicker than the anticipated timeline of more than 10 years.
Mayor John Tory says the city ”took years off” when it did not expand transit infrastructure.
He adds the fact the Yonge subway’s over capacity is why both the relief line and his proposed SmartTrack plan are critical for the city and are needed now.
