Emery Village Link 2A will provide a connection between Toryork Road and Finch Avenue West and will benefit vehicular traffic and pedestrian movement in the Emery Village area.
The new road will provide a needed alternative route for heavy truck traffic, especially vehicles that currently make left turns from the southbound Weston Road to Finch Avenue West in order to reach Highway 400. It will also increase vehicular access for future development in the area, and reduce traffic congestion.
The new road will establish a signalized intersection with Finch Avenue West, providing a pedestrian crossing opportunity to and from Lindy Lou Park. It will include sidewalks and boulevards to enhance the pedestrian experience.
Emery Village Link 2A was recommended by the Emery Village Transportation Master Plan (2009) and the Emery Village Secondary Plan (2002).
