This week I had a preliminary briefing with Metrolinx officials about the three new Smart Track stations that will be in or connected to Davenport.
New GO/Smart Track stations King-Liberty, St.Clair-Old Weston and Bloor-Lansdowne will use existing Metrolinx tracks on the Barrie and Kitchener GO lines to supplement local transit service. They are expected to be operational by 2026 and are being delivered in partnership with the City of Toronto.
Community engagement on these projects will continue with a community meeting in late October/early November, and new Community Liaison Committees will be struck, according to Metrolinx. In our meeting I raised community concerns about signal bells, fare integration, related infrastructure for cyclists and pedestrians and electrification of the GO network. I look forward to hearing more from residents in these neighbourhoods as these projects get underway.
