PUBLIC OPEN HOUSE #1

Davenport Diamond Rail to Rail Grade Separation
City of Toronto

THE STUDY
GO Transit, the Province of Ontario's interregional public transit service for the Greater Toronto and Hamilton areas, is involved in an environmental assessment of the Davenport Diamond. The Study Area extends from Keele and Dufferin Streets to the West and East, and adjacent to Rogers Road and College Street in the North and South (as shown in the map).

GO trains operating on the Newmarket corridor between Union Station and Barrie cross over the CP North Toronto corridor just south of Davenport Road. It is proposed that a grade separation of the Davenport Diamond will improve rail access along the two corridors.

Note: The photo has a marking that says "Bloor St.", but the Toronto Archives says this is Dupont St. Comparing to other photos from the area, this does indeed appear to be Dupont St., and not Bloor.

Royce/Dupont and Dundas St., March 9 1914

Royce Ave. (now Dupont St.) is one of the major roads that enters/exits out neighbourhood on both sides. Back in 1914, the intersection of Dundas St. West, Annette St., Royce Ave. (Dupont St.), and Old Weston Road was a much simpler affair, with a level crossing of the railway tracks. In this photo, we're looking east from Dundas St. over the tracks.

Royce Ave. (now Dupont St.) is one of the major roads that enters/exits out neighbourhood on both sides. Back in 1923, the intersection of Dundas St. West, Annette St., Royce Ave. (Dupont St.), and Old Weston Road was a much simpler affair, with a level crossing of the railway tracks. In this photo, we're looking east from Dundas St. over the tracks.

Sometime after this photo was taken, an underpass was built to eliminate this level railway crossing at the edge of our neighbourhood.

Here is another photo with a similar view from 1914.
