Highwater, Toronto already has major highways ringing the city.... something we now have. Building a highway alone will never improve a city. It's what's done after that makes the difference. Right now we have Burlington Street, QEW, Linc, 403 and Highway 20 (soon the RHCE) as our ring roads. Each of these has significant access to the surrounding areas allowing traffic to access from them. After this, it's up to the city to change the roads downtown to two way, limiting the traffic flow on highway 20 and all other major roads other than arterials by using smaller lanewidths, improving transit and pedestrian/cyclist access... all that stuff. Improving the core can't happen at the expense of the other areas of the city. In fact, I don't think it'd be possible without doing it all at once.
