In April 2019, City Council approved the streetcar option as the preferred technology for the Union Station to Queens Quay Link, and directed staff to undertake the preliminary design and engineering work for the extension of streetcar service to the East Bayfront from Union Station to Cherry Street. This work is part of the Council-approved Waterfront Transit Network Plan.
The current scope of work includes design of the underground section of the Waterfront East LRT from Union Loop to a surface portal on Queens Quay East, streetscape design for Queens Quay East, and preparing a 30% design, cost estimate, and Preliminary Business Case. In parallel with this work, Waterfront Toronto is updating past Environmental Assessment approvals through a Transit Project Assessment Process (TPAP).
