December 2014 Update
On December 1, 2014 the project team hosted its third and final public meeting to highlight the challenging section of the West Toronto Railpath Extension located between Abell Street to King Street West, where there is insufficient space within the Metrolinx corridor to route the trail. Potential alignment alternatives (including on-street options, and exploring the possibility of locating the trail on private lands) and their impacts were presented.
As part of this Environmental Assessment Study, the project team is not recommending any alternative for the segment between Abell Street to King Street West. We acknowledge that further study and consultation is needed to develop a viable route for the challenging section.
After a review of public feedback from the December 1 public meeting, a public consultation summary and next steps for the project will be available early in the new year.
It is important to not that while we still have work to do for the section in the Sudbury Street area, the recommended alignment for the Railpath Extension from Dundas Street West to Abell Street is a big accomplishment and will help create a sustainable transportation and recreation link between west-end neighbourhoods to downtown Toronto and the Waterfront.
