Don Valley Layover Facility LIVE - June 29, 2021

Archive - June 29, 2021

On June 29, 2021, Metrolinx hosted a virtual town hall including a panel of Metrolinx experts. There were 131 user visitors to the event web page (equivalent to approximately 60 participants) during the event. During the two-hour town hall (time was extended in order to respond to additional questions), we answered as many questions as possible about the Don Valley Layover Facility. Participants voted on written questions and contributed live questions. Participants were particularly interested in hearing about: the choice of location in the Don Valley; the need/purpose of the facility; the accumulative impact of many projects in the area; loss of trees; size of the facility; noise from idling trains; and changing ridership.

In case you missed the event, you’ll find the answers in the video recording below. We also received additional questions during the virtual session and are committed to answering those as well. Answers will be posted at the bottom of this page.
