Gardiner Expressway Toronto Findings

Of particular interest are the significantly lower “Life Cycle Cost” comparisons of the alternatives to maintaining elevated highways through the most valuable land in a city. This is a result of the “Revenues from Public Lans Sales”. The “Preliminary Evaluation Results heavily favor the “Remove” option.
