Second exit for Donlands Station:
Public meeting, December 2

You can learn more about the process for planning a second exit from the TTC’s Donlands Station at a public meeting tomorrow, Wednesday, December 2.

The TTC intends to build second exits from several of its older stations, including Donlands, to improve passenger safety and convenience.

As part of its commitment to modernizing its stations, it’s developed a new process to involve local communities in determining second-exit locations. This process, which the TTC recently used successfully at Chester Station, establishes local working groups to assess potential locations with an evaluation framework that third-party experts have developed. The TTC will convene a local working group for Donlands Station early in 2016.

The TTC is also planning second exits for College, Dundas, Dundas West, Greenwood, Museum and Summerhill stations.

The Donlands meeting takes place at:

St. David’s Anglican Church,
49 Donlands Avenue,
(across the street from the station)
Wednesday, December 2,
from 7 until 9 p.m.

If you can’t attend, the TTC will post its presentation and provide an opportunity for you to provide feedback on its website after the event.

The TTC previously attempted to build a second exit at Donlands and at nearby Greenwood Station from 2010 until 2012. It postponed the project after local residents criticized the transit agency for not consulting enough with its neighbours. The City of Toronto’s ombudsman, Fiona Crean recommended that the TTC develop a better process of public consultation for these projects. You can read the ombudsman’s report here.

The TTC will announce the second-exit planning consultation for Greenwood Station later.
