The Relief Line Study is moving full-speed ahead!
The terms of reference and public consultation plan were approved at City Council last week.
As I mentioned in my last newsletter, this joint city and TTC effort is studying possible station locations and routes for the first phase of the Relief Line. The first phase would take pressure off of the overcrowded Yonge line by providing a subway connection between the Bloor-Danforth line and downtown.
Earlier this year, the city and TTC held a number of public consultations to introduce the study and get feedback on how it should proceed.
As part of the next phase, staff will look at the right transit technology for the line and invite the public to participate in a naming contest for the Relief Line. In early 2015, staff will release a long list of station locations and route alignment options for consideration.
