PUBLIC CONSULTATION – METROLINX REGIONAL TRANSIT PLAN:
(including TTC Relief Line station in Corktown)
When: March 22 – 6:30-8:30pm
Where: Nelson Mandela Park Public School, 440 Shuter Street
On March 9, 2016 City Council approved Pape to Downtown via Queen/Richmond as their preferred corridor for the Relief Line project. Their preferred station within Corktown is at Queen and Sumach.
This public consultation meeting is your chance to voice your opinion and get any questions answered that you may have.
The CRBA’s Position on a TTC Relief Line Station in Corktown:
- The CRBA fully supports a TTC Relief Line station within Corktown.
- The CRBA would prefer a station at King and Sumach. This would present fewer interference potentials with heritage, would connect directly with the 504/514 streetcar routes, is less than 150m from Queen St E and is more centrally located in Corktown.
- If the City chooses the B1 alignment with a station at Queen and Sumach, we suggest a below-grade access south along Sumach to a station access location at King and Sumach where it would connect directly with the 504/514 streetcars and is more centrally location within Corktown.
- Wherever the station is located, the CRBA would prefer a smaller station presence at grade, with multiple fully accessible and discrete entrances leading to a lower level ticket hall and subway platforms. The station entrance must respect the heritage buildings in the neighbourhood.
