What's Happening Now?

In 2010, the City together with the TTC, completed an Environmental Assessment for an LRT on Eglinton from Kennedy Station in the east to Pearson International Airport in the west. In 2017, as part of the SmartTrack program, plans advanced for Phase 2 of the approved LRT that included further consideration for refinements and preferred stop locations for the section between Mt. Dennis and Renforth Station (Commerce Boulevard).

 

In December 2017, Council approved ten stop locations for the Eglinton West LRT at Renforth Station (Commerce Boulevard), Martin Grove, Widdicombe Hill / Lloyd Manor, Kipling, Wincott / Bemersyde, Islington, Royal York, Mulham, Scarlett, and Jane. The stops between Renforth Station (Commerce Boulevard) and the airport have not yet been finalized. We are also reviewing the feasibility, costs, benefits, impacts and strategic value of potential grade separations along the route. Work is also underway to identify the optimal route to connect the Eglinton West LRT to the Greater Toronto Airports Authority’s (GTAA’s) future Regional Transportation Centre and surrounding area (i.e., from Renforth Station north to Pearson International Airport).

 

As we continue to refine plans for the LRT, we are also looking at ways to increase value to the community. Additional opportunities we are studying in 2018 include:

We expect to share our findings and get feedback from the public in Fall 2018 to keep community members up to date on our progress before reporting to Council again in early 2019 and moving onto further design work. Your input to these on-going studies will help shape plans for our new Eglinton West LRT. Help build the future of your community by learning more about the Eglinton West LRT, subscribing to the Project mailing list to receive updates, taking part in all of our planned engagement activities, providing feedback on our Social Pinpoint page, and following our Facebook Page and Twitter Account.

Together, we can build the City and the transit network we want.
