Transit City – construction on Sheppard East LRT to start in 2009

City Council approved the recommendations of the environmental assessment, paving the way for construction of this first Transit City light rail line to start next year. Detailed design work on the light rail line will now begin. Council also requested that the TTC planning minimize the amount of land along Sheppard that must be expropriated for this project. The final environment assessment study report will be made available for a 30-day public review period.
