This is the result of many years of work by the community.

King – Queen- The Queensway- Roncesvalles Reconstruction: Sewer, Watermain, TTC Streetcar Track Replacement and Intersection Improvements starting in 2021

This is a joint project by the TTC, Toronto’s Transportation Services and Water Division.


Overall Scope of work

·         As part of the state of good repair work, the aging sewer and track around the intersection needs to be replaced

·         Relocating the eastbound centre platform streetcar stop to the far side of the intersection

·         Realigning the King Street West leg to create a better intersection angle and increase green space

·         Modifying / constructing street car platforms at Glendale Avenue

·         Continue the bump-out treatment on Roncesvalles at this intersection

As part of the Sunnyside Community Association area traffic study that was completed in 2008, the city will also be:

·         Adding dedicated eastbound – left – turn lanes at Sunnyside Avenue, Glendale Avenue, and The Queensway

·         Signalizing intersection at Sunnyside and The Queensway

·         Modifying the streetcar track vertical alignment (slope at Claude Avenue that will visually and physically enhance the existing right-in / right-out at Claude Avenue)

We will be sure to provide information related to the time and stages of work as we approach get closer to the 2021 construction period.
