I am pleased to inform you that Metrolinx has agreed to my reasonable request, which was passed unanimously at City Council in July to delay the EA process for the Davenport Community Rail Overpass project until late-October at the earliest. You can find out more details about the recent delay in this Toronto Star article.
This is a good first step and a sign of cooperation from Metrolinx as I along with many of my neighbours and the experts at the City of Toronto have requested that this delay take place. It is important for our community and the City to be able to have an opportunity to provide feedback, ideas, and requirements to Metrolinx. I also believe it is important for the public and the City to understand the reasons for proposing an above ground option as opposed to a below ground option.
I am looking forward to continuing this kind of cooperation as we discuss this project and how we can ensure that our community receives the best possible outcome. For an overview of some of the work I have done at the City to advocate on behalf of our community on this important issue, please visit this link. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact my office and I would be more than happy to help.
