TORONTO — Toronto City Council has voted to approve a revised version of its SmartTrack Stations Program that would see five stations built by Metrolinx.
Minister of Transportation Caroline Mulroney and Mayor of Toronto John Tory issued a joint statement supporting the transit plan after the city council vote Feb. 2. An amended Ontario-Toronto Agreement in Principle will be signed to officially endorse the plan.
The five stations are St. Clair-Old Weston, Finch-Kennedy, King-Liberty, Bloor-Lansdowne and East Harbour. The plan has been costed at $1.463 billion and is expected to be completed by 2026.
The program has been updated to reflect the provincial government’s priority work on the Ontario Line and Scarborough Subway Extension transit projects, stated a Feb. 2 release. The proposed Gerrard-Carlaw and Lawrence-Kennedy SmartTrack Stations are no longer part of the plan.
