The province has announced that the track work is complete on the Toronto-York Spadina subway extension.
Premier Kathleen Wynne, along with Transportation Minister Steven Del Duca and Josh Colle, the Chair of the TTC made the announcement at the future site of the Vaughan Metropolitan Centre Station.
The TSSYE will have add six new subway stations, three new commuter parking lots and a TTC, York Region and GO bus terminal. The project is expected to be completed by December 2017.
The 8.6 kilometre route between Toronto and York Region will add 36 million transit trips and eliminate 30 million car trips annually and will provide subway service beyond regional boundaries in the province for the first time.
Ontario has committed $870 million through the Move Ontario Trust towards the Toronto-York Spadina Subway Extension project — a $3.18-billion project that is jointly funded with the Government of Canada, the City of Toronto and York Region.
Premier Wynne says “With this investment, we will provide subway service that moves beyond regional boundaries for the first time. We are confident Ontario’s record investments in infrastructure will pay off for people in their everyday lives, and will also help our economy grow and create jobs.”
