Airport Segment Feasibility

Metrolinx is leading studies for the Airport Segment portion of the Eglinton West LRT to the GTAA's future RTPC. These studies will culminate in a recommended alignment and stop locations for the Airport Segment to be advanced to an EA/TPAP addendum and included in a Preliminary Design Business Case.

(Anticipated Completion: Mid 2018)

Purpose

To complete the concept refinement by identifying the recommended alignment for the LRT to connect with the Toronto Pearson Regional Transit Centre (RTC) and the surrounding employment lands.

This map is showing the alignment for the airport segment feasibility study. The alignment begins at Renforth Station (Commerce Boulevard) in the south, and travels north to the Toronto Pearson International Airport’s future Regional Transit Centre. In between are stops at Convair and Silver Dart. The 401 crossing between Renforth Station (Commerce Boulevard) and the stop at Convair is marked in black and the alignment is shown in orange.

Key Outcomes

  • - Confirm EA alignment from Renforth Station (Commerce Blvd.) to Silver Dart;
  • - Develop & identify preferred alignment from Silver Dart to the RTC; and
  • - Examine feasibility of a multi-use path and bus-only lanes on Hwy. 401 crossing.

Toronto Pearson's planned Regional Transit Centre connections a number of planned and existing transit lines into one centralized location and can serve as a major hub for GTA West.
