Update September 2012
The project team is continuing to work on further developing the alternatives presented at the first public information centre in June 2009. Due to continued discussions with Hydro One and CP Rail to resolve some outstanding issues, the second public information centre is now expected to take place in the fall of 2012.
The City of Toronto's Transportation Services has initiated a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment study of the possible extension of North Queen Street to The West Mall and The Queensway.
The purpose of the study is to investigate the establishment of new collector roads to provide traffic capacity to support development and/or redevelopment in this area. The need for the additional traffic capacity was first identified in the Sherway Centre Secondary Plan. The City's Official Plan also identifies the potential extension of North Queen Street.
Road extensions being considered are:
From the intersection of North Queen Street and Manstor Road to The West Mall (north of the CP rail corridor)
From the intersection of North Queen Street and Manstor Road to The West Mall; and,
From The Queensway (opposite the first set of traffic signals east of The West Mall) to the section of North Queen Street identified above.
Possible extensions are shown on the key map below. They will be evaluated based on a series of criteria developed during the EA process.
The study area is bounded by the Etobicoke River, Dundas Street West, Highway 427 and Evans Avenue in Etobicoke.
Involving the Public
A Public Open House was held on June 11, 2009 at the Etobicoke Civic Centre to present the problem, opportunities, possible solutions and list of criteria to the public.
