Plans are now being revised to address the issues raised at these meetings and to finalize alignment, station and traffic management recommendations. Detailed assessments of project costs, landscape and urban development impacts are also underway.

Alignment recommendations and reports will be prepared by January 2008 and further business and public meetings will be scheduled at that time to discuss the findings. Plans will then be forwarded to Councils and the Transit Commission for consideration.
