Yonge North Subway Extension LIVE - January 5, 2022

On January 5, 2022, Metrolinx hosted a presentation and live question-and-answer session with members of the Yonge North Subway Extension project team to share information about refinements made to the northern segment of the route and progress being made on the project, including plans for early works at Finch Station. The panel of Metrolinx experts answered the top-voted questions submitted by participants through our interactive online platform. The panel also took questions from community members who called in to the meeting. The topics included the adjusted alignment, Transit Action Ontario’s route proposal and Metrolinx’s analysis, and updates on our upcoming community office and sound demonstrations.

If you weren’t able to join us, the video recording is available below for you to watch any time.

We have a park that begins at Kirk and travels north or south to Royal Orchard. What are the plans for this park if option 3 is inevitable?
How will Metrolinx accommodate the community in the future. Is there a plan for tree's, plants and wildlife?
It is said that a project through our community will take more than 10 years? True/False

The letter of Dec 8 states that the depth ranges anywhere between 21 meters and 50 meters. Inform the affected homes what is the expected depth under each home as per your current plan. Not only the depth of the track from the floor of our basement (foundation) but also the depth of the top of the tunnel under the floor of the basement (foundation)

Now you have informed us of the project travelling under our homes, you can advise us on what we need to do to protect our homes/properties from potential noise/vibrations/damage. You said you have experts so you should be able to give us advise on what should/can we do to protect our buildings above the planned project part for preventative care.

Please provide us with the template letter that you will use when you inform the residents of perpetual or temporary sub surface acquisition with TERMS and CONDITIONS not the compensation. You have this already. Please send this immediately to affected people.
