a.  SmartTrack/Regional Express Rail (RER) Integration scenario with up to six new stations located at Finch, Lawrence, Gerrard and Unilever on the Stouffville/Lakeshore East GO corridors and Liberty Village and St. Clair West on the Kitchener GO corridor; and

 

b.  Eglinton West LRT extension with between 8 to 12 stops between Mount Dennis and Renforth Gateway, and potential grade separations located at Martin Grove Road, Kipling Avenue and the Eglinton Flats as well as the potential grade separations at Islington Avenue and Royal York Road and a review of their associated costs.

 

2.  City Council request the City Planning Division and the Toronto Transit Commission, in partnership with Metrolinx, the City of Mississauga and the Greater Toronto Airport Authority (GTAA) to further develop options for extending the Eglinton West LRT between Renforth Gateway and Pearson International Airport and to examine opportunities to provide commuter parking for the LRT.

 

3.  City Council direct the City Manager and the Deputy City Manager, Cluster B to work with Metrolinx to consider further the feasibility of a Woodbine GO Station on the Kitchener GO Corridor to coincide and support potential future development in the vicinity, including development of more than 700 acres at Woodbine, and to report back to City Council as appropriate, including the identification of potential contributions for a new station from private partners.

 

4.  City Council request the City Manager and the Chief Executive Officer, Toronto Transit Commission, to report to the Executive Committee in the fourth quarter of 2016 on the financial and logistical conditions imposed by Metrolinx that the City "provide accessible, weather-protected, pedestrian connection to Lansdowne Subway Station" and on the potential solutions to finance the investment needed to make this connection, as outlined in the City's Official Plan.

 

5.  City Council direct the City Manager to initiate discussions with Metrolinx and Transport Canada to identify best practices and possible solutions that avoids the use of train bells and/or whistles for trains entering and exiting passenger rail stations, and to provide a progress report to the Executive Committee by the end of 2016 on the status of those discussions and to include any steps or legislative requests which City Council can take in order to eliminate the use of bells and/or whistles at existing GO Train stations.

 

Scarborough Transit Network

Origin

(June 21, 2016) Report from the City Manager, the Deputy City Manager Cluster B, and the Deputy City Manager and Chief Financial Officer

Summary

In March 2016, City Council considered the report EX13.3 Developing Toronto's Transit Network Plan: Phase 1, which provided a comprehensive update on transit expansion projects currently under assessment, including how each project contributes to the development of Toronto's future transit network. City Council directed staff to focus analysis on key options for each transit project. In particular, City Council:

 

- Approved SmartTrack/GO Regional Express Rail (RER) Integration options C and D for further study and removed from consideration the separate and parallel SmartTrack option, option A and option B.

 

- Removed heavy rail options on the western corridor for SmartTrack from consideration and requested a review of the Eglinton West LRT extension from Mount Dennis to Mississauga Airport Corporate Centre (MACC) and Pearson  International Airport.

 

- Removed from consideration the Bellamy and Scarborough Express Rail (SmartSpur) corridors for the Scarborough Subway Extension (SSE); and

 

- Approved the Pape to Downtown via Queen/Richmond as the preferred corridor for the Relief Line project.

 

City Council also directed additional analysis be undertaken in partnership with the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) and Metrolinx to advance these projects for consideration at the June 2016 Executive Committee meeting. This report provides recommendations on the preferred options resulting from further technical, planning and initial business case analysis for SmartTrack/GO RER including Eglinton West LRT, the Scarborough Transit Network, and Relief Line. In particular this report recommends City Council approve the following options which further define the scope of each project:

 

- SmartTrack/RER Integration scenario with up to six new stations on the Stouffville/Lakeshore East GO corridor (Finch, Lawrence, Gerrard, and Unilever) and the Kitchener GO Corridor (Liberty Village and St. Clair West);

 

- An Eglinton West LRT extension with 8 to 12 stops between Mount Dennis and Renforth Gateway, as the western corridor for SmartTrack;

 

- Remove from further consideration the 3-stop SSE, and focus further business case analysis on a Scarborough Transit network solution that considers Express SSE options to Scarborough Centre and an extension of the Eglinton East LRT.

 

- Approve the Pape-Eastern-Queen alignment for the first phase of Relief Line, and authorize City and TTC staff to prepare the Environmental Project Report (EPR) to move towards the Environmental Assessment (EA)/Transit Project Assessment Process (TPAP).

 

The recommendations in this report further define the key projects which will form Toronto's transit network by 2031, and identify the next steps to advance to the next phases of analysis and discussion with the Province of Ontario, Metrolinx and the TTC.

 

The next steps to advance SmartTrack include:

 

- Advancing further technical and planning work in order to undertake the EA/TPAP processes required for the recommended SmartTrack/RER Integration scenario, the new SmartTrack stations, and the Eglinton West LRT extension from Mount Dennis to Renforth Gateway;

 

- Commencing negotiations on cost-sharing, project governance, asset ownership, fare policy, and project delivery for SmartTrack and the Eglinton West LRT extensions;

 

- Identifying the funding implications related to the City's share of costs for SmartTrack; and

 

- Undertaking further work with the City of Mississauga and the Greater Toronto Airport Authority (GTAA) in partnership with Metrolinx to refine options for extending the LRT between Renforth Gateway and Pearson International Airport as a next phase of the project.

 

The next steps to advance a preferred solution for Scarborough Transit include:

 

- Retaining the services of a third-party expert in rail transit construction and cost-estimation to undertake a risk assessment and detailed review of the TTC’s 5 percent design cost estimates for the Express McCowan subway, and other possible express subway alignments;

 

- Preparing the Environmental Project Report for the SSE Express subway in order to issue the Notice of Commencement for the TPAP once ready to proceed;

 

- Advancing the design on the Eglinton East LRT to a minimum of 5 percent in order to support decision-making; and

 

- Evaluating the SSE Express subway option in conjunction with the Eglinton East LRT extension to UTSC and Malvern, in order to determine the preferred network solution for Scarborough through a business case analysis.

 

The City Manager will bring a subsequent report to City Council with respect to the status of negotiations with the Province of Ontario, Metrolinx, and the Government of Canada, including funding implications for the City's share of costs associated with SmartTrack and Scarborough Transit.

 

The Relief Line project, a priority for the City and TTC, will continue per Council direction to advance planning, design and the EA/TPAP process for the first phase of the project. The first phase of the Relief Line between Danforth and downtown is a critical component of the longer-term vision for the new subway line which is envisioned to extend north to Sheppard Avenue and west to connect to the Bloor subway line. The City and TTC will work with the Province and Metrolinx to advance the next phases of the Relief Line.

 

The priority projects advanced in this report will be integrated into further refinement of the City's long term transit network plan through the Official Plan review process, Feeling Congested?, and forwarded to Metrolinx for consideration in the Regional Transportation Plan Review. As directed by City Council in March 2016, a report from the Chief Planner & Executive Director, City Planning will be presented in Q1 2017 with an update on the second phase of Toronto's long term transit network plan.

 

The City Manager has forwarded this report to the President and CEO, Metrolinx, and the CEO, TTC for submission to the July 11, 2016 TTC Board meeting.
