Getting stuck in traffic because of the construction of the Eglinton Crosstown is a headache right now but it will be worth it if gets cars off the road.

The problem: the province can't say how much it will ease congestion when the LRT is up and running in 2020.

Transportation Minister Steven Del Duca couldn't estimate how many cars it would take off the road.

During the election campaign Kathleen Wynne said she couldn't guarantee transit expansion like the Eglinton Crosstown would get people out of their cars.

Del Duca says he doesn't know the specifics of the plan to make Eglinton a Grand Boulevard and create laneways to help with traffic flow. However, he underlines the province is involved with the city on building the tunnels and stations.

When it comes to traffic because of the contraction, he stresses it's worth it.

Del Duca's office calls the Cross down a "a more attractive way than driving to get around." In an email, his spokesperson stresses traffic will be reduced since there will be no need for buses on Eglinton.
