NOTICE OF COMMENCEMENT

Transit Project Assessment Process and Public Meeting

 

The Project

The City of Toronto, together with the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC), is planning an extension to the Bloor-Danforth Subway (Line 2), from Kennedy Station express to Scarborough Centre. The proposed Scarborough Subway Extension will replace the existing

Scarborough RT (Line 3), representing one important component of the approved Scarborough Transit Network Plan.

 

The preferred station will be located on the west side of McCowan Road, between Triton Road and Progress Avenue, beneath a future extension of Borough Drive. The Project will include a bus terminal to serve local and regional routes serving the Centre.

 

Consultation

Members of the public, agencies and other interested persons are encouraged to participate actively in the Transit Project Assessment Process (TPAP) by attending consultation opportunities or by contacting staff directly with information, comments or questions.
