In August the Ford government replaced the approved Relief Line with their own Ontario Line.
Ontario Regulation 248/19, which became law on August 10, 2019, prescribes the City of Toronto’s Relief Line as the sole responsibility of Metrolinx, with the intention that it will be replaced by the new Ontario Line. The province also took direct control of the Scarborough Subway Extension and the Yonge North Subway Extension.
The new Ontario Line proposes to:
- Eliminate the Leslieville Station at Queen and Carlaw and add a new Station at De Grassi and Queen
- Run the Ontario Line above ground along the GO tracks from Eastern to Gerrard
- Increase the train frequency to 45 seconds between each train
This fall, the Executive Committee will meet to discuss the City’s approach to the Ontario Line and other transit projects. It will be very helpful for me to hear from you. I will also let you know how to take any concerns you may have to the Mayor and Executive Committee.
