The Eglinton Crosstown LRT project is now underway. Planners are inviting the public to provide input into designs for a light rail transit line on Eglinton Avenue spanning 25 kilometres from Black Creek to Kennedy. This is the single largest infrastructure project in Canada and will transform the entire centre of Toronto. If we don’t act now, it will be a generation before we have another opportunity to make Eglinton a safe, complete street for all users – pedestrians, bicyclists, transit users, and motorists of all ages and abilities.
The City already has bike lanes planned for the surface sections of the LRT on the east and west ends, but NOT the 10 km underground section from Black Creek to Brentcliffe. Now, the City will begin an Environmental Assessment study to redesign Eglinton Ave. over the underground section.
At the same time, the TTC is proceeding with individual consultations for the new Eglinton LRT stations on Eglinton. These consultations will determine whether the immediate vicinity around the stations are accessible to cyclists.
This is our opportunity to have safe and accessible cycling infrastructure along the whole length of Eglinton, including:
- Safe, protected bike lanes along Eglinton
- Connections to off-road trails and on-road bike routes
- Safe crossings over Eglinton
- High quality bike parking in accessible, well-lit areas
- Cyclist access into the new transit stations
- Clear, visible signage
Over the next year, Cycle Toronto will focus on winning Complete Streets on Eglinton. Check back here for news and updates on how you can get involved!
