Toronto Transit Commission
Downtown Relief Line South (Ontario Line)
“The proposed Relief Line South, a 7.5km long planned subway line with 8 stations, was intended to connect the Yonge-University-Spadina Subway (Line 1) downtown to the Bloor-Danforth Subway (Line 2). The Relief Line South was conceived to relieve crowding on Line 1 south of Bloor, at the Bloor-Yonge Station, and on the surface transit routes coming in and out of downtown.”*
HH Angus was engaged to produce preliminary systems design for two subway stations on the line: Gerrard Station, an in-line station, and Pape, one of the interchange stations, in this case with the existing Bloor/Danforth Line.
Funding and plans for transit relief lines are under review.
