Metrolinx announced in its Regional Express Rail Transportation Plan, the future plan for the Lakeshore West rail corridor that includes provision of 15-minute service and the electrification of the corridor.
To achieve this, and as part of required Lakeshore West rail corridor improvements, Metrolinx has identified the need for elimination of the road and rail at grade crossing at Burloak Drive to enhance safety, on time performance and operational flexibility/reliability, and construction of a new grade separation.
Metrolinx has begun an evaluation of the Burloak Drive Grade Separation Project through their Transit Project Assessment Process (TPAP), a type of environmental assessment outlined in Ontario Regulation 231/08 – Transit Projects and Metrolinx Undertakings under the Environmental Assessment Act.
