TORONTO – A Metrolinx consultant’s report obtained by the Toronto Star suggests it could take 10 years before a proposed Scarborough subway extension is up and running.
On Wednesday, the province announced it would move forward with a plan to extend the Bloor-Danforth line to Scarborough city centre, and fund the project itself.
According to the Metrolinx report, it will take five years to actually start building the proposed subway extension.
The province’s announcement on Wednesday has lead to more squabbling between the city, the province and the TTC — with no timeline for the project announced.
Meanwhile, Toronto Coun. Glenn De Baeremaeker believes federal funding is coming for the planned Scarborough subway.
He told the National Post he’s hearing that between $500-million to $600-million will be announced sometime before Christmas.
