Laird Drive to Don Valley Parkway Environmental Assessment Online Consultation Update

January 3, 2013

Metrolinx is undertaking an amendment to the Eglinton Crosstown LRT Environmental Assessment (EA). Including a change in the east tunnel launch location from east of Laird Station (near Brentcliffe Road) to just east of Don Mills Station.

Metrolinx held a Public Meeting on December 11th at the Ontario Science Centre to provide a project update, to present the proposed changes and improvements to the alignment and receive public input on the proposed changes. During the meeting and in some subsequent correspondence afterward, we heard that it would be preferable if the period for public comment on the proposed changes could be extended and if another community meeting could be scheduled.

In response to the comments we have heard and the input we have received to-date, we are extending the comment period from January 4 to January 21, 2013. We have also scheduled another Open House for January 31, 2013 at the Ontario Science Centre. The panels that were presented at the meeting are available here. A list of questions and answers can be found here.
