The provincial government says it will provide more than $55 million in funding to design the Yonge North Subway Extension.
Toronto Transit Commission (TTC), the Regional Municipality of York and York Region Rapid Transit Corporation will continue planning and design work on the priority project identified in Metrolinx’s Regional Transportation Plan for the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area, a government news release says.
The proposed project would extend the Yonge Subway Line from the existing Finch Station to Highway 7 in Richmond Hill, giving residents and commuters more transit options when complete.
The government news release says the extension’s environmental assessment was approved in April 2009; an addendum to include an underground train storage facility and surface facilities was also approved in November 2014.
