Project Overview

The Scarborough Subway Extension will extend the TTC’s Line 2 subway service nearly eight kilometres further into Scarborough, providing seamless, reliable transit to key areas in Toronto’s eastern hub. Stations are proposed at Lawrence Avenue and McCowan Road, Scarborough Centre, and Sheppard Avenue and McCowan Road.

The extension will travel eastward from Kennedy station, running briefly under Danforth Avenue, and then north to Sheppard Avenue and McCowan Road, generally within the McCowan Road right-of-way. The extension will strategically shift to the east and west sides of the right-of-way at certain points along the corridor to minimize construction impacts from shafts and stations. This approach will help keep traffic moving during construction and minimize disruptions to communities.
