The much discussed Scarborough subway extension could now be subject to yet another revision.
The revised plan would eliminate two of the three planned stations along the route, meaning the subway would run directly from Kennedy Station to the Scarborough Town Centre.
Stops at Sheppard and Lawrence would no longer be included.
$3.56 billion has been set aside for the project, but $1 billion in savings would be achieved if this new plan was adhered to.
The savings would then be redirected and used to fund an eastern extension of the Eglinton Crosstown LRT.
Mayor John Tory says the plan will provide better transit for residents in Scarborough with the addition of the 17 stop eastern extension to the LRT.
Tory says the new plan would be executed sooner than just the proposed Scarborough subway. He says the reduction in the planned subway should cut the timeline and adds that the Eglinton Crosstown LRT is already well under way.

This new LRT will provide transit service to 5 neighbourhood improvement areas.
