It looks like Queen Street would soon welcome a Downtown Relief Line that would run from Toronto’s East End. If a City Planning report is to be believed, the proposed subway line would begin at Pape Station and would run to the area around City Hally, the Globe and Mail said.
According to the report, the line would include stops at Sherbourne Street, Sumach Street, Broadview Avenue, and near Gerrard Square. It would also have a potential access to Stouffville’s GO corridor.
There are six possible routes being considered for the Relief Line—all of which would begin at either Pape or Broadview Stations on the Danforth Line.
Since 1910, the addition of a Relief Line has been debated in the city. Last week, Chief Planner Jennifer Keesmaat promised there were already plans for the Relief Line, along with potential stations.
The plan, however, would take a decade to complete.
