Do you think the street articles will be easier to navigate if instead of alphabetical order, they are sorted by physical position like in List of roads in Toronto? It may get confusing with all the contour roads though. Pomte 04:23, 24 February 2007 (UTC)

Concession Roads vs Lines[edit]

1) Generally, I think the most common usage is "sideroad" and not "sideline" or "concession line"

2) What is Toronto today had several different surveys. In the south, concessions ran parallel to the lake. In the North, concessions ran parallel to Yonge. Thus Bathurst might be a sideroad in southern Toronto, but is a concession road in Vaughan and King Townships and North York. Thus it is difficult/impossible to assign a category to most roads. Look closely at the York County atlas http://www.historicmapworks.com/Map/CA/345/County+Map/York+County+1878/Ontario/

You can see the directions of the lots clearly change direction at the road which is north of Davisville, which is Eglinton. Rephrased: concession roads run east-west south of Eglinton, and N-S north of Eglinton. You can also see Scarborough is on an entirely different grid, with concessions lettered A,B,C,D.
