The City of Toronto and the TTC will hold an open house for the proposed extension of the SRT:
- Tuesday, June 2, 2009
- 6:30 to 9:00 pm
- Sts. Peter & Paul Banquet Hall, 231 Milner Avenue
This open house is described as part of the preliminary planning for an EA for this project. One important outstanding issue is the question of vehicle technology, and this is far from settled. For example, the current proposal included in the meeting notice (not yet available on the City’s website) shows a new yard east of Bellamy and Progress. This yard would not be required if the line is built as LRT because it would share the proposed carhouse for the Sheppard East line.
Also, the station connection at Sheppard will be affected if both routes are LRT because a track connection for carhouse moves will be needed.
Whether these issues are addressed in the presentation materials on June 2 remains to be seen.
