The Bloor Street West Complete Street Extension between Runnymede Road and Resurrection Road aims to make travel on the street safer, more inviting, and attractive for everyone.
I am pleased to share that the public consultation is complete and that Transportation Services will be recommending installation of complete street elements on Bloor Street West from Runnymede Road to Resurrection Road as well as accompanying changes to the South Kingsway intersection.
If approved, phase 1 from Runnymede Road to Aberfoyle Crescent will be installed in summer of 2023.
This is great news for all road users.
Proposed changes to the street include road safety improvements, cycle tracks, and public realm upgrades to meet Toronto’s Vision Zero Road Safety Plan and Climate Change Action Plan goals.
Changes to Bloor Street West will be made with materials that can be installed quickly, such as bollards, roadway paint, planters and signage. No major road reconstruction is planned.
