An Options Analysis has been conducted to help recommend the preferred design for the Eglinton West LRT and evaluate the effectiveness in the future with regard to building complexity, cost, economic value and population growth.
The four options were analyzed in consideration of measures identified in collaboration with the Community Working Group and aligned to the following considerations:
Future population and jobs close to stations, and access to jobs and other destinations.
Travel time savings, transit reliability, traffic impacts and emissions.
Financial uncertainty, costs and availability of funding.
Technical complexity and availability of required labour force.
Traffic Study and Modelling
An updated traffic study and modelling was completed to identify current and future traffic conditions with the LRT Design Options. Modelling results are included in the Options Analysis.
