Will the new bridge have a Complete Street design? Please refer to the City of Toronto's Complete Streets Guidelines.
Also, could it have nice materials and a good design motif (such as railing, street lighting, high-quality paving)?

Will the corridor see an addition of a 5th rail line to service long term growing demand?
(Ex: 4 tracks total for GO Stouffville & Lakeshore, and 1 for frequent Intercity/VIA rail)

How is Metrolinx preparing for this now?

What will be the impact to the roads immediately north and south of the bridge? How will the current TTC bus routes be re-directed? Will the #20 bus remain on Highview Avenue or will buses be re-routed further south on Pinegrove Avenue?

It makes sense to connect a GO TRAIN station with a subway station that was built at Warden and St. Clair Ave. E. It should have been built at Warden and Danforth Ave. but the Warden Woods Mall was built years ago included this subway station. Now, it is just not able to serve the growing neighbourhood with buses into this busy station.

Will there be provision for a new station in this area (Warden Ave or Birchmount Rd)? This community deserve better Go Train services to places like Exhibition, Port Credit, and Oakville.
