Durham Region bus rapid transit project:
public meetings, October 22, 29

The Region of Durham is hosting two public information centres on its proposals to develop bus rapid transit along the Highway 2 / Kingston Road corridor through three “transit priority opportunity areas” in Pickering and Ajax.

During the event, Region staff will present design options in “transit priority opportunity areas along the corridor. Members of the public will have the opportunity to ask questions of staff and comment on the proposals.

To improve transit service and increase opportunities for cycling through the Region, staff recommend a design that includes bus-only lanes beside the curbs and on-street bicycle lanes in the three areas:

  1. in Pickering between Rosebank Road and the tracks of the Canadian National Railways’ York subdivision (east of Fairport Road);
  2. in Pickering between the railway tracks (west of Dixie Road) and the east city limits; and
  3. in Ajax between Rotherglen Road and the east town limits.

It also proposes widening the roadway to accommodate the new transit and cycling facilities — at White’s, Liverpool and Brock Roads, between Westney Road and Harwood Avenue and at Salem Road.
