City Council supports best active transportation option for Strachan Ave railway crossing
Last week, Toronto City Council approved the following motions,
putting us one step closer to a people-friendly rail crossing at
"1. City Council strongly supports the Grade Separation Option which
lowers the Georgetown/Milton rail corridor, allowing Strachan Avenue to
pass over the rail lines, and
2. City Council direct staff to forward this report to the GO
Transit Board requesting that the City Council preferred Strachan
Avenue Grade Separation Option be included as part of the Individual
Environmental Assessment Study of the Georgetown South Corridor Service
Expansion and Airport Transportation Link."
TCAT supported Councillor Pantalone's motion to study alternatives to a bridge or a tunnel in Sep 2007 (read our deputation here) and attended the public meeting last month where this option received unanimous approval from the 150 people who attended. We'll continue to keep you updated on this issue as it moves
on to GO Transit and the EA process.
