London grade separation proposals.—Several meetings are reported to have taken place between a special committee of the London, Ont., City Council and G.T.R. representatives to discuss the elimination of level crossings in the city. The Board of Railway Commissioners has had officials in London investigating the situation and a report has been received on the necessity of increased protection at the crossings. The city council is in favor of eliminating the crossings altogether and of so saving the cost of keeping watchmen, and G.T.R. officials are reported to have expressed a willingness to meet the city on the matter. A press report states that the company's Chief Engineer will visit London shortly to prepare plans for subways at Waterloo and Rectory streets as the beginning of the work. It is estimated that these subways will cost about $200,000 each. (June, pg. 292.)
