The comment period for the Phase 1 consultation has closed. A report summarizing the results of the consultation will be shared on this page in the coming weeks. View consultation materials in the Public Consultation tab below.
The City of Toronto is inviting residents to learn more and provide feedback on the first on-street cycling facilities within the Weston neighbourhood. The Weston cycling network will connect local destinations within the community and neighbouring areas, and enhance safe, active mobility options for residents.

Weston Cycling Connections will take place over three phases:

  • Phase 1: North-south cycling connections proposed to be installed in summer 2024 from Denison Road East to Church Street (public consultation currently taking place)
  • Phase 2: East-west cycling connections proposed to be installed in 2025 from the Humber River Recreational Trail to the Rustic and Maple Leaf neighbourhoods, to Trethewey Drive, and to the Weston GO station (public consultation expected to take place in 2024)
  • Phase 3: North-west connections proposed to be installed in 2026 to Weston Road and crossing Highway 401 to Wilson Avenue (public consultation expected to take place in 2026)

Phase 1 Project Area

The following streets are being considered by Transportation Services for cycling facilities in Phase 1, for installation in summer 2024:

  • Sam Frustaglio Drive – Denison Road East to Wright Avenue
  • Wright Avenue – Sam Frustaglio Drive to Pine Street
  • Pine Street – Wright Avenue to Church Street

On Sam Frustaglio Drive and the short section of Wright Avenue connecting to Pine Street, motor vehicle volumes are low enough to warrant using shared lane markings to designate the route.

In this section, the City is proposing:

  • Shared lanes in both directions
  • No changes to parking

Phase 2 connection to Trethewey Drive via Denison Road East

In Phase 2 of this project, the existing connection from the cul-de-sac of Sam Frustaglio Drive to Denison Road East, pictured below, is proposed to be upgraded and connected to a new proposed bikeway on Trethewey Drive. Public consultation for this connection and for Trethewey Drive will take place separately in 2024.

On Pine Street from Wright Avenue to Lawrence Avenue West, motor vehicle volumes are relatively low and a TTC bus loop utilizes the northbound lane for the 32C Eglinton West route and the 79 Scarlett Road route. There are also several driveway entrances serving the businesses on the west side of the street.

There are two options proposed in this section. Option 1 is preferred to Option 2 to accommodate the existing TTC bus stop on the east side of the street near Lawrence Avenue West, while providing separation and visibility at business entrances for people cycling.

Option 1 – Southbound Buffered Bike Lane and Northbound Shared Lane (Preferred):

  • Buffered bike lane on west side of street (southbound)
  • Shared lane on east side of street (northbound)
  • In-road flexible speed signage
  • Bicycle crossing signals at Lawrence Avenue West
  • No changes to parking

Option 2 – Southbound Shared Lane and Northbound Buffered Bike Lane

  • Shared lane on west side of street (southbound)
  • Buffered bike lane on east side of street (northbound)
  • In-road flexible speed signage
  • Bicycle crossing signals at Lawrence Avenue West.
  • No changes to parking

Cross-section of Option 2

For Pine Street from Lawrence Avenue West to Church Street, there are two options proposed. Option 1 is preferred to Option 2 to improve safety for people cycling and predictability for people driving by providing clear separation from motor vehicle lanes.

Option 1 – Bike Lanes (Preferred)

  • Bike lanes on both sides of street
  • Shared lane directly in front of Weston Collegiate Institute to accommodate school bus loading zone
  • Removal of 17 parking spaces on Pine Street between Queen’s Drive and Church Street*

*Street parking is already prohibited along most of Pine Street. The parking spaces between Queen’s Drive and Church Street are currently available for evening parking after 6 p.m., one hour parking on weekends and by permit at other times. Transportation Services conducted a parking survey of the 17 spaces and, over four distinct counts at different times, a maximum of two parking spaces were observed to be used at any one time.

Option 2 – Shared Lanes

  • Shared lanes in both directions
  • No changes to parking

Public feedback, along with technical considerations and City policies and guidelines will be considered in decisions to be made by staff and City Council.

The City Council-approved Cycling Network Plan is a comprehensive roadmap and work plan that outlines the City’s planned investment in our cycling network. It includes a Long-Term Cycling Network Vision, the planned Major City-Wide Cycling Network Routes, and a three-year rolling Near-Term Implementation Program.

The aim of the Cycling Network Plan is to connect gaps in Toronto’s current cycling network by growing existing and future cycling opportunities with safer and more comfortable cycling route options where quality can be improved.

The 2022-24 Near-Term Implementation Program identifies several key cycling routes throughout the Weston neighbourhood to connect key destinations and neighbouring community links.
