Its too late for any Highbury upgrade now anyways. The city has made its freeway bed with VMP, even though its not a freeway and does not serve daily commuters. Another example of London pussyfooting around, trying not to upset anyone.
The city is quite pathetic when it comes to land expropriation, they keep pressing voluntary land sales, which means projects are pushed back indefinitely like Commissioners, Bradley. Someone needs to grow a pair and say tough shit, were taking x amount of land and that's the way she goes! Instead London falls further into mediocrity.
At least the province doesn't put up with that type of nic-nac bullshit, and things like 407 eastern extension are not too far away!
