Can you provide an update on where the extension to Pearson Airport stands. Do u think both of them can open at the same time or close to each other. Without have the link to Pearson will be a failure for this line. It will make no sense to have express busses run from EGLRTW to Pearson. This will provide through connectivity crosstown. Update Plz?

Is there a reason why station construction would not begin before the tunnel digging. I'm no architect, but would it not speed up the process of this line, so we don't have another stretched time frame, like the crosstown, which is now on a tight rope of actually being finished in 2022.

The first phase of the Crosstown has been built with provisions for future 3 LRV-long train operations. Will the Crosstown West have the provision for 3 LRV trains too?

The EA process is designed to protect the natural environment and mitigate potential impacts as a result of a project. If this is the case, then why is the proposed route that is primarily underground proposed to become above-ground in a very ecologically sensitive area, with wooded areas, wetlands and streams, to the west of Mount Dennis station?

Will "sidewalk supervisor" webcams be located at important locations along the construction route. Especially at the portals and station locations/

Going north along Hurontario, will it be possible to make vehicular left turn onto Kingsbridge Garden Circle from Hurontario when LRT is completed? If not, what is the option to access KBGC from Hurontario?

Currently that turn and any other left turns from Hurontario is a complete disaster and accidents waiting to happen!!! No traffic control...

Are you going to do the same thing that you did when the first phase of building the Eglinton Line involved people in the naming of a handful of stops and stations who shared names with pre-existing stations? If you're looking for suggestions, I thought of possibly naming the future station Widdicombe, after the nearby Widdicombe Hill.

Measuring from the North curb, how far to the North will the station footprint and emergency exit extend ? How extensive will the removal of trees from the woodlot to accommodate these structures be required? And from the West curb of Kipling, how far will the removal of trees extend to the West?
The woodlot serves as natural sound dampening
