In his giant wave of whaargaarbl, Cclr Whitehead did make a good point: Tolling the Red Hill/Linc will result in a spillover of traffic onto the local streets. It's reasonable to be worried about that.

However, I worry about that either way - more traffic on the Linc/RedHill will still back up as they arrive at the narrower expressways at their endpoints - the 403 escarpment access is only 2 lanes, and the Red Hill / QEW ramp is long and narrow. So even beyond concerns about induced demand and the environment, the constraints that already exist on the Linc/Red Hill may actually make this whole upgrade completely pointless.
