Transit Project Assessment Process

Scarborough Subway Extension – Environmental Project Report

The Project

The City of Toronto, together with the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) have completed an Environmental Project Report (EPR) for the planned extension of the Bloor-Danforth Subway (Line 2), express from Kennedy Station to Scarborough Centre.  The proposed Scarborough Subway Extension will replace the existing Scarborough Rapid Transit (Line 3), and is an important component of the Scarborough Transit Network Plan.

 

The proposed 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 for local and regional routes serving the Centre.

 

The Process

The Scarborough Subway Extension EPR was completed in accordance with Ontario Regulation 231/08, Transit Projects and Metrolinx Undertakings. Its environmental impact was assessed in accordance with the Transit Project Assessment Process.

 

The EPR for the Scarborough Subway Extension transit project is now available review starting on August 24, 2017 and ending on September 25, 2017. The EPR is on the project’s website at www.scarboroughsubwayextension.ca and at the locations listed below.

 

The Minister of the Environment and Climate Change has authority to require further consideration of the transit project or to impose conditions on it if the Minister is of the opinion that:

  • The transit project may have a negative impact on a matter of provincial importance that relates to the natural environment or has cultural heritage value or interest; or,
  • The transit project may have a negative impact on a constitutionally protected Aboriginal or treaty right.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Before exercising the authority referred to above, the Minister is required to consider any written objections to the transit project received within 30 days after the Notice of Completion is first published.

 

Interested persons are encouraged to review the EPR and provide comments by September 25, 2017.  If you have discussed your issues with the proponent and you object to the identified changes to the project, you may submit an objection to this transit project to the Minister of the Environment and Climate Change no later than September 25, 2017 to the address provided below.  Any comments received after the September 25, 2017 comment deadline will not be considered. All submissions must clearly indicate that an objection is being submitted and describe any negative impacts to matters of Provincial importance: impacts to the natural environment, cultural environment or Aboriginal rights.
