As a result of Toronto City Council’s decision on October 8th to implement an extension of the Bloor Danforth subway instead of a light rail transit line in Scarborough, Metrolinx has directed Infrastructure Ontario to cancel procurement of the Sheppard-Scarborough Maintenance and Storage Facility project.
The size of the MSF facility was originally scoped to store and provide maintenance of LRVs for the Sheppard and Scarborough light rail transit lines. Now that the Scarborough LRT line has been cancelled, the MSF facility as currently configured is no longer required.
Although the Sheppard-Scarborough Maintenance and Storage Facility project is not proceeding as initially planned, Metrolinx is considering a Maintenance and Storage Facility in the future to support the Sheppard LRT project.
- The maintenance and storage facility will initially maintain and service 100 light rail vehicles but it will have a total future capacity for 135 light rail vehicles.
- A car-house, storage track, maintenance of way building, brake test track and traction power substation will be included in the new maintenance and storage facility.
- The maintenance and storage facility will be built on approximately 12.9 hectare (a 32-acre site); be 17,500 square metres in size; and be located on the corner of Sheppard Avenue and Conlins Road in Scarborough.
Community and Green Benefits
- It will help improve public transportation and reduce greenhouse gas emissions and congestion.
- The project will contribute to an economically vibrant and sustainable future in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area.
