Relief Line - Draft Evaluation Process and Criteria

  1. 1. RELIEF LINE PROJECT ASSESSMENT Evaluation Process and Criteria DRAFT March 2015
  2. 2. RELIEF LINE PROJECT ASSESSMENT Evaluation Process and Criteria March 2015 – DRAFT 2 Evaluation Process The proposedevaluationprocessforthe Relief LineProjectAssessmenthasfour mainsteps. First, potential stationareaoptions will be identified. Next,potentialstationarea options will be assessed againstevaluationcriteria. Then, preliminary corridors forthe Relief Line willbe developed,connecting the best-performingstationareas. Finally, alignmentsandstationlocationswithin the preferred corridorwill be evaluatedingreaterdetailandrefined inordertoidentifyapreferredalignment. At all stagesof the Relief LineProjectAssessmentEvaluation,potential stationsandalignmentswill be evaluatedusingthe evaluationframeworkdevelopedaspart of the Review of the City'sOfficial Plan TransportationPolicies ("FeelingCongested?") assummarizedin Table 1. The evaluationframework capturesthe many aspectsof city-building,all of whichare importanttothe future of Toronto. The evaluationprocessandcriteriawill be refinedandfinalizedbasedonfeedbackreceivedfrom stakeholdersandthe publicthroughPhase 1B/2 consultation.

Evaluation Criteria 1. Identifying Potential Station Areas A longlistof potential stationareaoptionshasbeenidentifiedwithinthe studyarea,withthree areasof focus: within downtown, alongthe Danforth,andkeyactivityareaswithinthe restof the studyarea. Primaryconsiderationsforpotential stationlocationswithindowntownandalongthe Danforthare the abilitytosupportfuture connectionsof the Relief Line westandnorthandto provide connectionstothe existingandplannedtransitsystem. The full range of citybuildingcriteriawere alsotakenintoaccount,includingthe abilitytosupportthe planningpolicyframeworkassetoutin the City’sOfficial Plan,the potential toserve existingandfuture populationandemployment,andconsiderationof opportunitiesforredevelopmentandintensification.

  5. 5. RELIEF LINE PROJECT ASSESSMENT Evaluation Process and Criteria March 2015 – DRAFT 5 3. Developing and Evaluating Corridors and Stations Followingevaluationof potential stationareas, potential corridors toconnectthe stationareas having the bestoverall potentialtoaddressthe evaluationcriteria will be identified. Thiswill include considerationof the ability toserve expansion of the Relief Line tothe westandnorthinthe future. The potential stationlocations associatedwitheachcorridorwillbe analyzed basedonthe evaluation criteriaoutline in Table 3. Additional considerationsforthe potential stationsin downtownandalong the Danforthare outlinedin Table 4. As part of the evaluation,the potential corridorswill be assessed interms of potentialtransitridership and the abilitytoreduce crowdingandcongestiononthe Yonge line,atthe Bloor-Yonge Stationandon the surface transitroutes.In addition,feasibilityof optionsforcrossingthe DonRiverValleywill be considered. The criteriaforassessmentof the potentialcorridorsare outlinedin Table 5. 4. Developing and Evaluating Alignments and Stations Potential alignmentsandstationlocationswithinthe preferredcorridorwill be developedtoa finerlevel of detail toconsiderbothphysical andoperationalconstraintsand/orfeatures. The criteriainTables3, 4 and 5 will be usedtoguide evaluationof potential alignmentsandstationlocations. The evaluationprocesswillleadtoapreferred alignmentandstations forthe ReliefLine.
