The Better Way in Ward 30
At its July meeting City Council voted to proceed with the Relief Line subway, which will link Yonge and Queen subway station to the Pape subway station. There will be three new stops in Ward 30 at the East Harbour, in Leslieville and in Riverdale at Gerrard.
I'm working with the Mayor and with City staff to make sure that Smart Track/ RER stations are fully integrated with Relief Line stations where they overlap at East Harbour and Riverdale, and to ensure that the new subway location in Leslieville will serve the thousands of people who live and work in the Dundas/Carlaw corridor and that the proposed route from Riverdale to Leslieville is reviewed.
I did not vote for the one stop Scarborough subway, but I did support the Eglinton East LRT to the U of T Scarborough campus.
City Council continues to discuss fare integration with GO as a foundation of Smart Track planning.
I will keep you updated on these exciting transit projects.
