  • Noise & Vibration (Lakeshore West Corridor)

    • When new infrastructure is built, Metrolinx undertakes a

    Noise and Vibration Modelling study to determine baseline

    conditions as well as assess potential impacts once the

    infrastructure has been built. Based on the results of the

    study for the Lakeshore West Corridor, no noise mitigation

    was recommended.

    • Noise related to existing and future service is a concern that

    we have heard across the region, so we are committed to

    looking at any changes that can be made to reduce noise for

    our neighbours.

  • Lakeshore West Corridor– Electrification Infrastructure

    • Approximately 49 km of electrified corridor

    • Two Hydro One Tap Locations:

    o Burlington Tap

    o Mimico Tap

    • Traction Power Substations

    o Burlington TPS

    o Mimico TPS

    o 25 kV Feeder Route

    • Two Switching Stations

    o Oakville SWS

    o Mimico SWS

  • Lakeshore West Corridor– Bridge Modifications

    • Along Lakeshore West Corridor there is a total of:

    • 9 road bridges over rail; and,

    • 2 pedestrian bridges over rail

    • Bridges over the rail corridor will require bridge barriers for safety.

    • Sunnyside Pedestrian Bridge and Drury Lane Pedestrian Bridge will require barriers. The addition of the barriers could make the bridge structurally unsound. Therefore these bridges will need to be structurally reinforced or replaced.

    • In order for trains and the electrification wires to meet the clearance requirements under Strachan Avenue, Brown’s Line, Royal Windsor Drive, Dufferin Street, Dowling Avenue, Dunn Avenue, Jameson Avenue and Drury Lane Pedestrian Bridges, an engineering solution is required to increase the distance between the top of track and bottom of the bridge.

    Drury Lane Pedestrian Bridge Sunnyside Pedestrian Bridge

    • Cultural Heritage Evaluation Reports are being completed for several

    bridges to identify heritage value. Bridges identified as heritage will have

    Heritage Impact Assessments completed to protect heritage features.

  • Mimico Tap/TPS/25 kV Feeder Route

    • The Mimico Tap/TPS is to be

    located on a parcel of land

    situated on property at the

    south west corner of the Canpa

    rail corridor and Milton corridor,

    west of Kipling Avenue.

    • The 2x25 kV Mimico feeder

    route will commence at the

    Mimico Tap/TPS location and

    run south via aerial cables

    along the Canpa Rail right-of-

    way to the Mimico SWS site.

    The aerial feeder will be

    supported by poles similar to

    typical hydro poles.

    • The Canpa rail right-of-way is

    owned by Metrolinx.

    • The Mimico Tap/TPS site is

    currently mainly open

    space/vacant lot with a building

    and parking lots/storage areas

    and a rail corridor to the north.

    • The Mimico Tap/TPS site is

    currently owned by Hydro One.

  • Mimico Switching Station

    36 Towns Road Toronto, west of the GO Transit Willowbrook Rail Maintenance Facility, north of

    rail corridor

    • The Mimico SWS is to be located on a

    parcel of land at 36 Towns Road in

    Toronto, just west of the GO Transit

    Willowbrook Rail Maintenance Facility

    and north of the rail corridor.

    • Towns Road is an industrial cul de sac,

    and the parcel is surrounded by industrial

    development. The parcel is currently

    being used as an industrial storage area,

    with some vegetation cover adjacent to

    the rail corridor.

    • The proposed positioning of the SWS

    within this parcel is adjacent to the rail

    corridor and is currently storage area and

    vegetation.

    • The property is currently privately owned.

    Current conditions at the proposed Mimico

    Switching Station site.

  • Oakville Switching Station

    560 Maple Grove Drive Oakville, southeast of the rail corridor

    Current conditions at the proposed Oakville

    Switching Station site.

    • The Oakville SWS is to be located

    on a parcel of land at 560 Maple

    Grove Drive in Oakville. The site is

    southeast of the rail corridor and is

    currently an intermodal facility

    (parking/storage area), with a

    shopping plaza and office

    buildings to the south.

    • The proposed positioning of the

    SWS is at the northwest side of

    the parcel adjacent to the rail

    corridor.

    • The property is owned by

    Metrolinx.

  • Burlington Tap/Traction Power Substation

    845 Laurentian Drive Burlington north of the rail corridor, southwest of Cumberland Avenue

    Current conditions at the proposed Burlington

    Tap and Traction Power Substation site.

    • The Burlington Tap/TPS is to be located on

    a parcel of land situated east of 845

    Laurentian Drive in Burlington, and

    includes the existing Hydro One

    Cumberland Transformer Station (TS). The

    site is accessed via Cumberland Avenue.

    • The parcel is currently a parking lot, short

    driveway, the Cumberland TS with

    associated transmission lines, and some

    open space/vegetation. It is located

    between a building supply operation to the

    east and a manufacturer of transformers to

    the west.

    • The proposed positioning of the Tap/TPS is

    at the southwest corner of the parcel,

    adjacent to an industrial building, and is

    currently open space/vegetation.

    • The Tap/TPS property is owned by Hydro

    One.
