This Toronto street is so bad it just took the top two spots on the worst roads in the city list
Plagued with construction for more than a decade now, it's no surprise that Toronto drivers, cyclists and commuters of all kinds tend to avoid Eglinton Ave. as the city awaits the multiple-times-delayed completion of the new Crosstown LRT line.
what’s the worst street to drive on in Toronto & why is it Eglinton— JJ rants (@its_jawairia) January 14, 2021
Residents are also unlikely to be shocked by the fact that the thoroughfare has now officially been named one of the worst roads in the city and the province at large for 2021 — not just once, but twice.
CAA has graciously deemed Eglinton Ave. E to be the worst roadway in Toronto, while Eglinton Ave. W takes the second spot of five.
The two sides of the street also take the titles of fifth and seventh worst roads, respectively, of ten in the entire province.
Weston Road, Dufferin Street and Bathurst Street also made the former list, as voted on by drivers.
The poll is intended each year to "help municipal and provincial governments understand what roadway improvements are important to citizens, and where they need to be made."
People really hating on brampton yet our worst paved roads are still better than your best ones 💀— Opallo the beat connoisseur (@OchereDeryck) March 2, 2021
Some of our drivers are mod yes but don’t come at us when you guys have been doing construction on Eglinton since world war 1
Unfortunately for Torontonians, identifying Eglinton as a massive problem won't do much — the long-running work on the LRT will be carrying on for at least another year and a half, and perhaps even longer now that there's a legal battle between the province and the construction consortium behind the project.
