Central Station Reference Concept Design Online Consultation

  1. 1. Welcome to the Central StationReference Concept DesignOnline ConsultationPlease review the presentation and complete thesurvey.February 28, 2013 to March 14, 2013 1
  2. 2. Online Consultation Overview February 28, 2013  Provide a brief Crosstown update  Update on the AFP Process  Present The Crosstown station and stop design philosophy  Provide latest details on locations of stations and stops 2
  3. 3. Crosstown Map 3
  4. 4. OverviewWhat is The Crosstown?  $4.9B Project ($2010) funded by the Province of Ontario  19 kilometres east-west Light Rail Transit (LRT) from Kennedy to Mt. Dennis, including a tunnelled central section  New transit connections to Yonge, University-Spadina Subway, Scarborough RT and GO Stouffville line and future connection to GO Kitchener line  Up to 26 stations 4
  5. 5. OverviewWhere we are in the process  Tunnel Boring Machine (TBM) launch shaft approaching completion  Soil testing is currently underway from Don Mills Road to Weston Road  West tunnel contract awarded summer 2012  Conceptual design and requirements identificationWhat’s next  Utility relocation at station locations beginning with Keele Street in winter 2013  Construction of TBM launch and extraction shafts at Eglinton West station  TBMs arriving on site in spring 2013  Tendering of project 5
  6. 6. New Approach:Alternative Financing and Procurement (AFP)Public-private partnership models have been underway in Canada for 20years  165 projects  21 transportation projects  $51 billion total project valueCanada-wide examples  Canada Line rapid transit project (Vancouver)  Autoroute 25 (Montréal)  Trans-Canada Highway (Atlantic Canada)Ontario examples  Pan Am games athletes village  Ottawa Light Rail Transit  Highway 407 East Phase 1  Rt. Hon. Herb Gray Parkway (formerly the Windsor-Essex Parkway) 6
  7. 7. Owner’s Role Changes with AFP 7
  8. 8. New Approach: Advantages of AFPIncreased capacity to bring projects to marketTransfer of risk  Appropriate risks transferred to private sector to ensure “on time, on budget” delivery and value for money  Design, construction, cost escalation, schedule delays, operations, maintenance, life cycle and financial riskCost certainty  Optimal cost combination: combines capital, maintenance and life cycle costs  Integration of design and construction 8
  9. 9. New Approach: Roles and Responsibilities in the DesignBuild Finance Maintain ModelMetrolinx Role  Finance  Design • Project Budget • Overall scope (inclusion of • With Infrastructure Ontario, run a maintenance, operations, competitive procurement etc.) process; select the winning • Project-Specific Output contractor Specifications (with  Maintain Consultant team) • Testing & Commissioning (with • Real Estate Acquisition (with Toronto Transit Commission) City of Toronto) • Safety Certification and Project  Build Acceptance • Oversee Construction Phase  TTC to operate • Quality Assurance • Integrated with existing TTC system 9
  10. 10. Approach to new transit: Light Rail Transit 10
  11. 11. Approach to Station Design: Urban Design Principles  Locate station entrances and vents to limit the amount of frontage impacted  Explore opportunities to consolidate and locate above grade mechanical vent shafts where their impacts on adjacent development can be minimized  Site station entrances and ventilation infrastructure with possible new development in mind  Locate primary and secondary entrances so that they can help to contribute to the creation of a consistent building setback  Minimize the impact of vents and other facilities through careful siting 11
  12. 12. Approach to Station Design: Architectural Principles  Station and stop designs should reflect their civic role through high quality architecture and urban design  Logos, station names, and signage should be used boldly and consistently to reinforce station identity  Signage and way finding shall be highly standardized  Variation of treatments used to differentiate stations  Stations can embrace the local context through design or art installations  The Public Realm should be used as an opportunity to enhance user experience and integrate stations into their surroundings 12
  13. 13. Approach to Station Design: Safety and accessibility  Elevators will be included in all stations  Designated waiting areas will be included in all stations  Stations will use standard elements to make them familiar to passengers with accessibility challenges  Integrate Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design principles into station design  Light colours will be used to improve safety and efficiency  Incorporate fully glazed station entrances to maximize light 13
  14. 14. Approach to Station Design: Public Realm ElementsPublic Realm  Implementation of streetscape, furniture, and tree planting standards  Widen sidewalks within station area  Stations entrances will be identified by a consistent pylon sign  Some stations will include landscaped plazas which will: • Compliment the design of the station • Include pedestrian level lighting • Include trees, hard and soft landscaping 14
  15. 15. Approach to Station Design: Public Art  Stations will feature public art  Artwork will be integrated with architectural finishes or elements of the stations and plazas  Surface stops may also include public art 15
  16. 16. Reference Concept Design  Stations are shown as a Reference Concept Design (RCD)  Reference Concept Designs, or functional designs, are used in the AFP model as inputs to the development of the Request for Proposal (RFP)  The functional design is intended to identify the location of entrances, exits and ancillary station (ventilation) equipment  Functional designs are not intended to provide architectural details for stations  The AFP partner will be developing designs for the stations and these will be subject to public input 16

  23. 23. Challenges of interchange stations Interchange stations are much more complex to build than inline stations for many reasons:  Little clearance between existing subway and new deeper station platform which would require underpinning of existing subway structure  Existing subway stations and bus terminals must remain in operation during construction Complex stations being built in already built-up areas  Interchanges with surface transit must be incorporated  Opportunities for natural light will be difficult due to depth of stations  Vertical movement must provide proper connectivity between two platform levels Clear wayfinding signage needed for efficient passenger flow Resolution of code issues arising from the integration with existing structures 23
