I wouldn't be too hard on any one about Eglinton Ave. It varies from a width of 4-5 lanes were the LRT is underground and few of those 4 lane stretches are pretty thin, giving each lane a width of 8 feet would be stretching it. This is mostly due to the fact that, a good part of Eglinton Ave. from Laird Drive to the Allen Expressway began its suburbanization process in the early 1880's, long before the need to provide wide boulevards for cars. The sections of LRT right of way where the Eglinton Crosstown is above ground varies from 9 lanes at Don Mills Rd. to 5 at Kennedy Rd.
