    Do the taxiways not have stop bars embedded in the pavement?
    (row of red LED's at the holding point that you don't cross until extinguished by ATC)

    If they used 24 R for landings and 24 L for take offs, wouldn't that reduce the possible conflicts?

    Stop bar lights were installed last year at 2 airports in my route system. It took the controllers a bit of time to adjust to operating them. The controllers have to turn off the lights when they issue a crossing clearance. Pilots refused to cross active runways when issued a clearance because the controllers forgot to turn off the stop bar lights. Spacing got tight a few times. The point is that stop bar lights work. Runway intrusion events were lower last year after the installation. I guess that since Montreal is the capitol of ICAO, Toronto will have to wait for stop bar lights to be installed.....
