  2. 2. SmartTrack Eglinton Corridor Feasibility Review STUDY BACKGROUND December 11, 2014 - City Council directed staff to work with the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) and Metrolinx to develop an accelerated work plan for a review of the SmartTrack and RER plans and consider the infrastructure requirements, planning, social, economic development considerations, and incremental costs of implementing the SmartTrack plan.   February 10, 2015 - City Council approved the overall accelerated work plan for the SmartTrack/RER study and further directed staff to work with the TTC and Metrolinx to undertake a feasibility review of three main SmartTrack options to connect Mount Dennis station to the Mississauga Airport Corporate Centre. The feasibility review includes:   • At least 3 stations; • Integration with the Kitchener GO corridor/ RER plan; • Public consultation to inform the review; • Consultation with City of Mississauga; and • Preparing the feasibility review as a background study for the Transit Project Assessment Process (TPAP), subject to further Council direction.
  3. 3. SmartTrack Eglinton Corridor Feasibility Review STUDY BACKGROUND • Findings from the feasibility review will be used by the City, TTC and Metrolinx in the comprehensive review of SmartTrack and Regional Express Rail (RER). • City staff will report to Council in Fall 2015 on the results of the feasibility review, along with other elements of the SmartTrack work plan.
  4. 4. SmartTrack Eglinton Corridor Feasibility Review TIMING This review will be carried out in 3 phases which include: Phase 1: June 2015 Public Consultation Round 1 • Confirm approach to the project • Identify conceptual alignments • Develop broad screening criteria • Seek public input on all of the above Phase 2: September 2015 Public Consultation Round 2 • Evaluate feasibility of conceptual alignments/solutions • Rank draft short list of feasible conceptual alignments/ solutions based on “Feeling Congested?” criteria • Seek input from the public and the City of Mississauga on all of the above Phase 3: November 2015 Report to Council • Refine results of Phase 2 based on public input • Report to Council on feasible solution at the same time as reporting on SmartTrack/RER Future Work (if required) • Further analysis and final project review (Transit Project Assessment Process) in 2016
  5. 5. SmartTrack Eglinton Corridor Feasibility Review ANALYSIS OVERVIEW (PHASE 2) Phase 2: The draft conceptual alignments will be refined and the feasibility of each will be evaluated from the following perspectives: Technical Analysis • How could the alignments be constructed? • Could they connect to other existing and planned transit lines? • What would the operational constraints be? Service Concept Analysis • What additional infrastructure would be required for SmartTrack to operate on the alignments? • What would be the implication for other services (GO, VIA, UP Express) if additional infrastructure is not added? • What would be the impacts on regional connectivity? Regulatory and Legislative • What federal and provincial approvals would be required to construct the alignments?
  6. 6. SmartTrack Eglinton Corridor Feasibility Review Land-use Analysis • Would the alignments be compatible with surrounding land uses? • What is the development potential around potential stations? • What impacts could there be on sensitive features? • Is heavy rail appropriate for serving the anticipated ridership considering the surrounding land uses? Financial Analysis • What are the estimated costs for constructing, maintaining and operating each of the alignments? ANALYSIS OVERVIEW (PHASE 2)
  7. 7. SmartTrack Eglinton Corridor Feasibility Review ANALYSIS OVERVIEW (PHASE 2) As part of “Feeling Congested?” the transportation component of the Official Plan Review process, a set of City-Building principles and criteria were developed by which transportation projects could be evaluated. The feasible conceptual alignments will undergo technical analysis and will be ranked based on these principles in order to inform the resulting recommendation to Council. Serving People Supporting Prosperity Strengthening Places
  8. 8. SmartTrack Eglinton Corridor Feasibility Review POTENTIAL CORRIDORS AND CONCEPTUAL ALIGNMENTS Three corridor options will be evaluated for feasibility: 1. Continuous Connection - Eglinton • A continuous heavy rail spur connection from the Kitchener GO corridor connection by way of Eglinton Avenue West • 2 potential alignments 2. Continuous Connection - Airport • A continuous heavy rail spur connection diverging from the existing GO corridor near Highway 27 into the airport and south to the Mississauga Airport Corporate Centre • 3 potential alignments 3. Separate Service - Eglinton • A separate heavy rail corridor along Eglinton Avenue West with a transfer at Mt Dennis • 1 potential alignment The western portion of the Eglinton Crosstown LRT will be taken as the base reference case against which other options are evaluated.
