  • two north-south freeway links connecting the 407 to Highway 401, one in Whitby (the “West Durham Link”) and the other in Clarington (the “East Durham Link”), each about 10 kilometres long;
  • a dedicated transitway corridor paralleling the mainline and the West and East Durham Links; and
  • support facilities, including two highway maintenance facilities, two transitway maintenance facilities, two commercial vehicle inspection facilities, three truck lay-bys and seventeen transitway stations.
