Register for the Virtual Public Meeting on Tuesday, December 7, 2021, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

 

In 2023, parts of The Queensway between Mimico Creek and the Humber River will be reconstructed and the watermain will be replaced. The road and watermain work provides an opportunity to review the street for changes to improve safety and operations for people driving, taking transit, walking and cycling.

A final recommendation is planned for submission for approval to the Infrastructure and Environment Committee and City Council in the spring of 2022, followed by detailed design in the summer and fall of 2022.

Vision Zero Road Safety Plan

The proposed changes on The Queensway are guided by the City’s Vision Zero Road Safety Plan. The plan is focused on eliminating traffic-related fatalities and serious injuries by making our roads safer for everyone, especially vulnerable road users such as seniors, school children, and people walking and cycling. From 2015 to 2019, 338 vehicle collisions occurred on The Queensway, and two collisions resulted in serious injury.

Project Goals

  • Improve safety for everyone
  • Enhance the walking, cycling and transit experience
  • Maintain or enhance greening
  • Maintain roadway uses such as for transit, goods movement (trucks), shopping and commuting

Proposed Improvements along The Queensway

  • Sidewalk widening, and new sidewalks between the Humber Bay Loop and Humber Bridge, south side
  • Improved bus stops and waiting areas
  • New raised and protected bicycle lanes on both sides of the street, with vehicle lanes maintained
  • New bike signals and protected corner islands at key signalized intersections
  • Signal timing adjustments to improve safety and optimize efficiency for buses, trucks and cars
  • New centre median from Stephen Drive to Aldgate Avenue, and from Aldgate Avenue to Park Lawn Road, to reduce likelihood of left-turn collisions
  • New landscaping, trees and stormwater management features
