York Region Rapid Transit Corporation, in partnership with The Regional Municipality of York, Toronto Transit Commission, and City of Toronto have undertaken an Addendum to the Environmental Project Report [EPR] for the Yonge Subway Extension project that was approved by the Minister of the Environment on April 29, 2009.
In spring 2013, public consultation sessions were held to present the proposed amendments to the Yonge Subway Extension infrastructure, including an underground train storage facility and aboveground buildings, in the Yonge Street and Bantry Avenue area in Richmond Hill.
At these meetings, the preferred location and design concepts of the proposed facility were also presented. Based on the public feedback received, design elements and construction impacts have been further analyzed, mitigation strategies have been identified and revisions have been made to the proposal.
The revised plans for these facilities have been prepared and an addendum to the Environmental Project Report for the Yonge Subway Extension will be available for a 30-day review period, starting September 5, 2014 [see link below], as well as at the locations listed below. For more details, please review the notice. We hope that you take the opportunity to review and provide feedback.
