Bruce McCuaig answered some readers‘ questions for The Star in advance of the UPX launch this weekend. The questions were unusually sharp and are worth the read.
McCuaig said–with hedging–that the line will be electrified by 2023. He also said that Metrolinx is planning a stop in Mount Dennis, which would connect with the Eglinton LRT.
e are building in plans for a new GO station and UPX station into the construction contract for the Eglinton Crosstown LRT. The Crosstown phase 1 ends at Mount Dennis and I think it would be a great place to have an interchange to give people more choice.
