Won’t construction of these new lines have a negative impact on businesses and residents?


All infrastructure work can be disruptive.

  • Because LRT construction is faster, and requires fewer complex stations and less tunnelling, it is less disruptive than subway construction.
  • The TTC and the City have learned lessons from past projects, including the St. Clair R.O.W., to improve communication and construction coordination and minimize delays.
  • While the process may be disruptive during construction, residents and businesses end up with reduced congestion and improved infrastructure, a great benefit over the medium and long term.
