The Ontario Line - Neighbourhood Updates - North - Cosburn

map of the Cosburn station

 

The Ontario Line will bring customers to Pape Village and East York thanks to a new station at Cosburn and Pape. A total of 10,300 people will be within a short 10-minute walk of the station by 2041 and roughly 2,600 people will use the station during the busiest travel hour, with 1,200 of those riders transferring to and from surface-level transit.

By positioning Cosburn Station west of the street, fewer of the buried utilities will need to be relocated, including the recently upgraded water main. While the property requirements for this approach are comparable to what would have been needed if the station were built directly under the street, an added benefit is that there will be fewer impacts to area traffic.

Work is anticipated to begin after financial close for the Northern Civil, Stations and Tunnel procurement package.
