Station needs south side entrance


Published:

Residents who access the Eglinton West subway station from the south side of Eglinton Avenue West know how difficult it can be to cross the street safely. This is especially true around the intersection of Eglinton and Allen.

It is for this very reason that I have been advocating to Metrolinx for the past year to include an entrance to the subway station and future Eglinton-Scarborough Crosstown LRT on the south side of Eglinton Avenue.

Metrolinx hosted a community meeting last spring and I, along with other elected representatives, sent a formal letter requesting Metrolinx to include a south side entrance to both the subway and LRT, which would fall in the 13 Division – Toronto Police Service station parking lot.

However, recently and without any formal notice, Metrolinx has released its immediate construction plans for the LRT line and has left the south side entrance out of those plans entirely.

The community needs to make their voice heard on this matter and let Metrolinx know that the south side station is critical to our community and must be included in the plan immediately.

The Eglinton West subway and LRT station will be a major transit hub at a busy and vital traffic intersection and is, without a doubt,  in serious need of a south side entrance.

My e-newsletters will outline our advocacy campaigns to Metrolinx and the province.
