Metrolinx Davenport Diamond Drop-In Sessions

Email from Metrolinx on Feb 10 2016:

The Davenport Diamond Grade Separation project is intended to eliminate the ‘Davenport Diamond’, one of the busiest train intersections in North America, where CP Rail freight trains and GO Transit passenger trains cross at a ground-level rail crossing.

Continuing the Conversation on the Davenport Diamond

In addition to the start of Transit Project Assessment Project for the Davenport Diamond Grade Separation project on January 28 and opportunities to provide comment as a part of that process, we are continuing to seek feedback on the initial overpass design concept and the elements of the bridge that are important to you and the community. To review the preliminary design direction and share your feedback, please visit metrolinx.com/RERDavenport.

Over the coming weeks and months, there will be a number of opportunities to provide feedback, answer questions and provide clarification on plans for the Davenport Diamond Grade Separation. Throughout February, we will be hosting community drop-in sessions to give you an opportunity to stop by and speak directly to us to answer any questions you may have and record your feedback as part of the formal record for the project.

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.

PUBLIC MEETING NOTICE
DAVENPORT COMMUNITY RAIL OVERPASS

Metrolinx, an agency of the Province of Ontario, is working to transform the way the region moves by building a fast, convenient and integrated transit network across the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA). Metrolinx is moving forward with Regional Express Rail (RER), a program that will provide significant new travel choices on the GO Transit network across the region.

WHAT WE ARE PLANNING
Metrolinx is planning to build an elevated rail corridor that follows the current GO Transit route between Bloor Street West and Davenport Road. The Davenport Community Rail Overpass project is intended to eliminate the ‘Davenport Diamond’, one of the busiest train intersections in North America, where CP Rail freight trains and GO Transit passenger trains cross at a ground-level rail crossing.

WHAT WE ARE DOING
Metrolinx is in the early stages of assessing the environmental impacts of this transit project by completing an Environmental Assessment following the Transit Project Assessment Process (TPAP), as prescribed by Ontario Regulation 231/08 made under the Environmental Assessment Act. As part of the TPAP, we are beginning our engagement with our neighbours and stakeholders.

COME AND MEET YOUR NEIGHBOURS
Metrolinx randomly recruited 36 residents to participate on a Residents’ Reference Panel to work on behalf of their community to ensure that the Davenport Community Rail Overpass benefits the neighbourhood. The Panel invites you and your neighbours to be part of this process by engaging with Metrolinx and the Panel to learn more about the project, share your thoughts and to stay involved.

Please join us:
Date: Tuesday, May 12, 2015
Time: 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.
Location: Davenport Perth Neighbourhood Centre*, 1900 Davenport Road, Toronto, ON M6N 1B7

COMMUNITY MEETING
JOIN THE JUNCTION TRIANGLE TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT COMMITTEE – PHASE 2
In response to traffic related concerns raised by residents in the Junction Triangle neighbourhood, in 2012, I facilitated the creation of the Junction Triangle Traffic Management Committee (JTTMC). The JTTMC created a traffic management plan geared at addressing traffic issues in the community. By the end of 2014, many traffic improvements were implemented.
The JTTMC wants to get started on the 2nd Phase of the traffic management plan and would like your participation! For this reason, I invite you to a community meeting so you can meet your current JTTMC members, review the traffic improvements to date, and the JTTMC's working plan for the 2nd Phase. The JTTMC is also looking for additional help, so join us on March 5, and become a part of the JTTMC and this exciting project!
WHEN: Thursday, March 5, 2015
6:30 PM – 8:30 PM WHERE:
St. Rita's Catholic School
178 Edwin Ave.

Note: If you cannot attend this meeting for any reason, please do not hesitate to contact my office with your questions and/or concerns.
