The City is currently reviewing additional cycling and pedestrian improvements between Scarlett Road and Runnymede Road on:

  • Eileen Avenue (between Scarlett Road and Florence Crescent)
  • Pritchard Avenue, Castleton Avenue and Henrietta Street
  • Runnymede Road (between Henrietta Street and St Clair Avenue)

The proposed route to improve cycling and walking safety is displayed in the map below. Along the whole route, wayfinding signs and markings are proposed to be installed and safer intersection crossings would be provided at every major street. Along Florence Crescent, a short contra-flow bike lane is proposed to be installed. A short section of cycle track is also proposed on Runnymede Road south of Liverpool Street to connect to the existing bike lanes that continue south of St. Clair Avenue West. The project has no impacts to motor vehicle travel and a loss of several parking spaces on Runnymede Road.

More details are provided in the Information Panels.

Between 2019 and 2020, Scarlett Road was resurfaced and new bike lanes were installed. A new traffic light was installed in 2021 at Eileen Avenue and Scarlett Road. The Scarlett Road Cycle Track expanded the local cycling network, connecting to multi-use trails on the Humber River, Black Creek, Eglinton Avenue, as well as future bike lanes at Scarlett Road Bridge at Dundas Street West and St. Clair Avenue, and on Dundas Street West (2021-2024).
