It's been a while since TCAT News last reported on the debate around a redesign for the South Kingsway-Queensway Interchange in Ward 13. The Toronto Urban Renewal Network (TURN)
has been busy organizing residents interested in designing and building
an interchange that improves safety and accessibility for pedestrians,
cyclists and transit users.
For those in the Scarlett Road / Dundas Street West / St. Clair Avenue West area of Toronto, the City has completed its Environmental Assessment to "address existing traffic safety and operational concerns and long term mobility needs" at this complicated and potentially dangerous interchange.
The recommended design includes two lanes in either direction with a bike lane on Scarlett Road.
As reported in the January 24 TCAT News e-Bulletin, Metrolinx (formerly the Greater Toronto Transportation Authority) has released its Active Transportation Green Paper for public comment. This is an opportunity to tell our new regional transportation authority what you think of its analysis and preliminary plans for walking and cycling in the GTA.
