1a. The article prose is generally fine, except for few minor details:--Tomobe03 (talk) 11:59, 4 November 2011 (UTC)

  • The lead, the infobox and the RJL specify three different lengths of the route. Moreover the main body text specifies none.
  • The article text describes the Prince Edward County Road 1 junction roundabout, while the RJL specifies the junction to be a traffic circle. Since the roundabout article specifies differences between the two this may be a source of confusion.
  • There was a single instance of a disambiguation link in the article (Queen Elizabeth) - in the lead, and already fixed.
  • Since there already is a solid reference to the traffic volumes (AADTs), why not mention those in the article - a single sentence would probably do.

1b. The article is generally MoS compliant in terms of layout, infobox, rjl and so on; my only concern is bolded name Glenora Ferry in the lead. The MOS:BOLDTITLE permits bolding of alternate names of the article subject, but this appears to be unrelated.--Tomobe03 (talk) 10:57, 4 November 2011 (UTC)

2. Missing citations - The first paragraph of the "History" section requires at least one additional citation. Granted, a part of the claims therein can be supported by The Leader–Post reference, but some of it is not covered. This particularly pertains to the penultimate sentence of the first paragraph, and consequently the last sentence of the same paragraph. The most problematic seems to be the Bath Road issue and I feel that if a source for the Bath Road is applied together with the one mentioned above, the paragraph would be covered. There is also a mention of the Bath Road in the "Route description" equally unsourced. Finally, I see the "Route description" section is sourced entirely from an atlas (offline), and I believe the map reference to be sufficient there, except maybe in resepct of the Glenora Ferry. On the other hand, a repeated reference could be used there - the one used to reference the ferry service table perhaps.--Tomobe03 (talk) 11:40, 4 November 2011 (UTC)

6b. Does the roundabout image depict the Prince Edward County Road 1 junction? Even though the article says the Prince Edward County Road 1 junction roundabout was the first modern one to be built on a provincial highway, it does not specifically say if there any other on the route. Perhaps changing the image caption to something like Ontario Highway 33 and Prince Edward County Road 1 junction in mid-construction might be a more informative caption in this case.--Tomobe03 (talk) 11:14, 4 November 2011 (UTC)

Overall there are no major issues with this article, apart from few missing citations, and some of them may be covered by repeated references to the existing cites. The sources used so far appear reliable and solid, with no apparent copyvios. The OR doesn't seem to be a problem, assuming the missing citations are added as necessary. The 2b/2c were not rated as I expect the 2a (missing references) issue to be fixed first. I'll place the nomination on hold for now.--Tomobe03 (talk) 12:05, 4 November 2011 (UTC)

1a. All fixed. Looking over the two articles, I really can't see what the difference between the two is. I had assumed both terms would link to the same article, but I will change traffic circle to roundabout since that is the more common term in Ontario.
1b. Correct me if I'm wrong, but it should also bold terms when that term redirects to the article. The Glenora Ferry is solely a point to point connection on this highway so I'm not sure it's worthy of an independent article (at least with the limited information I've found)
2. Actually the map has the ferry schedule and path in it. Doesn't mention the lack of fares however, so the Ministry website is sourced for that. I've added that note and source into the prose (and cleaned it up since it was still in raw format). I added a couple more refs for the Bath Road part as well.
6b. Fixed

Thanks for the review. Hopefully the changes I've made resolve all the issues. - ʄɭoʏɗiaɲ τ ¢ 17:25, 4 November 2011 (UTC)

All outstanding issues are addressed now, so I'm passing the nomination. Nice article.--Tomobe03 (talk) 18:52, 4 November 2011 (UTC)
