Transit City:
Eglinton - Crosstown LRT open house set for July 29



TTC and City of Toronto staff are hosting one more open house to present their plans for the Eglinton - Crosstown light rail Transit City line on Wednesday, July 29.

During the event, staff will be available to answer your questions on the project and also make a presentation on how they propose to locate stations along the route.

They will also provide information on where they propose building the line on the surface and where they propose building a tunnel to accommodate the line underground. Staff will also review various options for building portals — entrances for light rail cars to enter and leave the underground portion of the line — around Black Creek Drive in the west and Brentcliffe Road in the east — and various potential routes for the line between the airport and Martin Grove Road.

The 31-kilometer-long line will stretch from Toronto Pearson International Airport to Kennedy Station on the TTC’s 2 Bloor - Danforth subway and 3 Scarborough rapid transit lines and the future Scarborough Malvern light rapid Transit City line.

Passengers traveling along the Eglinton - Crosstown LRT will be able to connect with other future Transit City lines along Jane Street and Don Mills Road, the Mississauga Transit / GO Transit bus rapid transit line and the the TTC’s current 1 Yonge - University - Spadina subway at Eglinton and Eglinton West Stations. Also, at the Airport, the line will meet the future Metrolinx / GO Union - Pearson Rail Link and, possibly, depending on the final route, the future Etobicoke - Finch West Transit City light rail transit line. A future rail station in the Mount Dennis Community may also allow Eglinton - Crosstown passengers to transfer to GO’s Georgetown line and the Union - Pearson link.

The TTC and City plan to open the new line in 2016 and expect that the line will carry 51 million passengers every year by 2021.

The open house takes place from 6:30 until 9 p.m. on Wednesday, July 29 at Iondale Heights United Church, 115 Ionview Road. Ionview Road is the first street east of Kennedy Road (and Kennedy Station), running north from Eglinton Avenue East. The church is seven blocks north of Eglinton.


This open house is the last of four public open houses in which staff present their proposals for the Eglinton Crosstown line. This event replaces the open house that staff originally scheduled for the Don Montgomery Community Centre on Thursday, June 26. (Earlier that week, members of the Canadian Union of Public Employees Locals 79 and 416 started their current work disruption, so the organizers could not use a City of Toronto venue to host the meeting.)
