PDP #178: Right-of-Way

The streetcar right-of-way along the Queensway is one of the oldest in Toronto, built back in the 1950s as an adjunct to Fred Gardiner's sprawling road projects. It's also one of the only places in the city where Toronto's streetcars can do what they were built to do - accelerate to high speeds and fly like the wind, as I can't think of anywhere else that combines a private ROW with relatively low perpendicular traffic volumes like the Queensway does.

It also encourages development alongside it. This is a nice area, east of Windermere - the houses are all facing High Park and Grenadier Pond.
