Doug Ford commits $11.2B for 4 major GTA transit projects, including new ‘Ontario Line’

Premier Doug Ford’s provincial government unveiled its nearly $30-billion transit expansion plan — including a new 15-kilometre “Ontario Line” stretching from Ontario Place to the Ontario Science Centre in Toronto.

Meant to replace the concept of a Downtown Relief Line to ease what Ford calls the “dangerous congestion” on the city’s subway network, the proposed line will be double the length proposed by the city at a cost of nearly $11 billion.

“We’re making the largest investment in new subways in Canadian history,” Ford told reporters on Wednesday.

Well at least there’s no plan for a monorail.
