Oshawa & East Turn Around

Preliminary Design for City of Oshawa

This page contains information on the preliminary design in the City of Oshawa. Scroll down to watch a narrated overview of the preliminary design in Oshawa or scroll through the design drawings at your own pace.

Renderings have been developed to show how the corridor would look in the future with BRT.

 A map indicating the three different corridor design segments for the City of Oshawa portion of the BRT project. Segment 1 is King Street from west of Thornton Road to Bond Street; the design proposes to widen the segment to add two dedicated centre-median transit lanes and maintain existing four lanes for general traffic. Segment 2 is King Street from Bond Street to Simcoe Street; the design proposes to convert a general traffic lane to a curbside dedicated transit lane. Buses will travel eastbound on this segment. Segment 3 is on Bond Street from King Street to Simcoe Street; the design proposes to convert a general traffic lane to a curbside dedicated transit lane. Buses will travel westbound on this segment.

Based on the preliminary preferred design, a new turnaround option is proposed. Dedicated transit infrastructure would extend to Simcoe Street. East of Simcoe Street, buses would run in mixed traffic.

The recommended route for the Durham-Scarborough BRT service is:

Eastbound:
King Street » Ritson Road » William Street (layover location)

Westbound:
Division Street » King Street » Ritson Street » Bond Street

Orthophoto map depicting the eastern end of the proposed BRT corridor in the City of Oshawa. The map identifies the recommended turnaround route for eastbound and westbound buses, and also identifies the proposed layover location that will serve as the eastern terminal. The layover location is located on William Street east of Division Street.

This turnaround option will be further considered in consultation with Durham Region Transit and the City of Oshawa.
