Where along Eglinton Avenue West LRT extension will the pocket tracks be located for possible disabled trains? Where will crossover tracks be located at the stations for short turns or entry or egress from the pocket tracks?

With the elevated Jane Station, will provision be included for a full grand union, three-quarter union, half union, or butterfly union at a level intersection with the future Jane LRT? Will there be an underpass or overpass intersection provision with the future Jane LRT? Could a temporary pocket track be used at the Jane Station that could be incorporated into the future Jane LRT?

Will the stations incorporated multi-use, multi-story buildings, that includes retail (dry cleaners, bank ATMs, shoe repair, barbers & hair salons, etc.), medical offices, small industrial (bicycle repair, auto repair), and residential (above the 3rd floor)? That is so that people can actually walk to and from the stations to them.

Specifically looking at the homes between Royal York Rd and Islington on the North side. These houses are on Hamptonbrook Drive and have backyards that back onto Eglinton. Will the green space be altered? Will there be significant construction? Will there be a station on the corner of Islington/Eglinton? Or just stairs to an underground access (like University/Queen)? Thank you.
