Omission of the McCowan and Lawrence Station

"They will only be able to build a future station at McCowan and Lawrence if they prepare for it now - Part of the savings gained by omitting the stop at McCowan and Lawrence is that the tunnel can be shallower and much less costly without a station there - This has to do with the design and technical problems of running the tunnel beneath West Highland Creek - If they do not build the tunnel deep enough now, the cost to build a station at McCowan and Lawrence in the future will be prohibitive - It will also be a fraction of the cost to build the headwalls for a future station now"
