Most transit discussions lately have revolved around the plan for extending the Bloor-Danforth (Line 2) subway further into Scarborough and the Smart Track proposal put forth by Mayor Tory. However, the study for the Downtown Relief Line continues to progress. For more background on what the Downtown Relief line is see our backgrounder.
Last April we covered the first phase of the public consultation process, where the terms of the study process were discussed. The second phase of the study focuses on creating the evaluation criteria for potential station locations and route alignments as well as creating the long list of potential stations.
There are four consultations with identical formats in the next two weeks to discuss phase two of the relief line study.
