Toronto might build a new subway below Queen Street

If you've ever been on the TTC during rush hour, you know how badly Toronto needs a downtown relief line. And according to the Globe and Mail, we might finally be getting this oft-discussed subway extension.

As the Globe reports today, city staff briefed Toronto city councillors on the possibility of creating a subway route under Queen Street to take a load off the over-crowded Yonge-University-Spadina Line.

Staff are looking at six possible routes, which all run from either Pape or Broadview Stations towards the city's downtown core.

Though, the Globe writes, the preferred route would go from Nathan Phillips Square to Pape Station with stops at Sherbourne, Sumach, Broadview and near Gerrard Square.

Of course, this plan is still in its infancy and has a long way to go before it becomes reality.
