Public Meeting Notice

Project Update
Davenport Diamond Grade Separation

Metrolinx, an agency of the Province of Ontario, is working to transform the way the region moves. As part of plans to use GO rail corridors as the backbone of an electrified rapid transit network that connects communities and people through a reliable, frequent rail and light rail service, we are looking at ways to remove the Davenport Diamond rail-to-rail crossing to increase reliability and safety.

Project Update
As a unique piece of rail infrastructure, options to remove the crossing have been reviewed and the public meeting focused on the feasibility or technical study outlining the community impacts of the options. This meeting builds on the feasibility report and provides an opportunity to view and provide feedback on the design work that has been completed to support Metrolinx’s commitment to design excellence and community building.

Come and Learn More
In preparation for the commencement of the Transit Project Assessment Process in January 2016, this meeting will include a presentation on preliminary design work on options to remove the crossing and provide an opportunity for residents to ask questions in advance of the start of the formal 30-day public consultation period.

Date: Monday, January 18, 2016
Time: 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.
Location: Davenport Perth Neighbourhood Centre*, 1900 Davenport Road, Toronto, Ontario
* This location is accessible.
