Queens Quay Revitalization Public Meeting

PUBLIC MEETING & DROP-IN CENTRE
Queens Quay Revitalization Environmental Assessment & East Bayfront Transit Environmental Assessment
March 25 & March 28

Waterfront Toronto, Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) and the City of Toronto have undertaken comprehensive Environmental Assessments to revitalize Queens Quay from Parliament Street to Lower Spadina Avenue and introduce new transit services to the East Bayfront.  The studies have explored how to implement long standing City of Toronto policy objectives to transform Queens Quay into a scenic waterfront drive, provide transit priority and complete the Martin Goodman Trail through the central waterfront.  Together, the Queens Quay Revitalization Environmental Assessment and the East Bayfront Transit Environmental Assessment have undertaken the development and analysis of alternatives related to the urban design and functional plan for the overall Queens Quay corridor, and the evaluation of alternative streetcar tunnel and portal locations.

On March 25th Waterfront Toronto will present the recommended preferred road alternative for Queens Quay and the sel ection of the preferred tunnel portal location for the new streetcar line.  The public meeting will include detailed descriptions of the evaluation process and analysis which have led to the preferred alternatives.  On March 28th we will be holding a Drop-In Centre where plans of the recommended preferred designs will be on display and team members will be available for one-on-one discussions.
