The Province of Ontario has stated that it plans to extend Line 4 to the future Sheppard East station on the Scarborough Subway Extension. How is this project planning ahead for the future Line 4 extension? Will a Line 4 station be “roughed in” at Sheppard East?

Will the three stations on the Scarborough Subway Extension have platform screen doors?

Is Metrolinx planning for a future extension of Line 2 past McCowan and Sheppard north to Finch Avenue East or even to Steeles Avenue East?

I understand funding right now only applies to the current SSE but just wondering if additional track and associated infrastructure will be built north of Sheppard Avenue to protect for a future extension.

There has been news coverage of a planned design for the bus terminal at Scarborough Centre station which suggested that the bus terminal would so massive that it would be inconvenient for riders. Has this issue been resolved? The bus terminal here is an important local and regional bus hub and should have a good, efficient design.

Is there planned Transit Oriented Community (TOC) development happening at all of the 3 new stations?

Will any stations have washrooms ?

In the event that construction on SSE is delayed, what agreements are there with the TTC to provide additional resources for prolonged coverage of shuttle bus service to Kennedy station? Will this be built into the penalty clauses in the contract with the construction consortium?

What are the plans to handle traffic along Eglinton & McCowan roads? The Eglinton Crosstown is an example where pylons are placed in areas and left for weeks at a time which significantly inhibits traffic flow. Can you ensure workers relocate them on a daily basis IF they aren't going to be working the next day?

During the construction phases, how the traffic management will work along Brimley, Brimorton, and Ellesmere. There are a number of schools along Brimorton and the current traffic situation is already bad.
Also how the construction will minimize noise and dust issues? Many people are working from home.

Where exactly are the stations going to be located? Including the entrances/exits and bus loops.

Will both Sheppard East & Scarborough Centre stations on this extension serve Viva?

By removing Midland and McCowan stations, is this the best decision for preparing for the "unforseen"?
There's 12+ condos at the areas set to build around STC, so is one station going to prevent redundant traffic? Is this the best for foot traffic?

What about the environmental impact assessments?

I'm also concerned about this. Large bus terminals are the worst, especially for families/young children. To be honest, there should be a stop at Brimley, two smaller stations than 1 large one.

Is it possible that you can extended Line 2 beyond Finch & Steeles to reach Highway 7 & so it can connect to the Viva Purple & Green lines?

As a public service, community ideas and suggestions should be taken seriously. Where is the list for community suggestions which are implemeted to show community involvement in this design? There's a lack of transparency if there is no evidence for community involvement.

If this is underground, then why not extend it to the lakeshore as a round trip?

When will we get to give feedback on station naming? It’s important that stations represent local communities.

If Line 4 is supposed to connect to Line 2 in th' future, then it should've been extended been years now!
