The section of the Ontario Line on the north/west side of the rail corridor from East Harbour to Gerrard is already proposed to be above ground.

How does this change east of East Harbour affect the line and its construction methods from East Harbour to Corktown Station?

Answer from Metrolinx: The refinement in the rail corridor between East Harbour and Gerrard is being advanced to protect more park space and slim down permanent infrastructure requirements.

The area around the future Corktown station will be used as a tunnel boring machine launch site for the Ontario Line. As a result of the refinement, the Lower Don Bridges and the tunnel portals in the Don Yard (GO staging area west of Cherry Street) have been updated to reflect the Ontario Line running in the north/west of the existing rail corridor. In this area, we continue to work with the Toronto Region Conservation Authority to ensure we are coordinating with the many flood mitigation and City-led projects.
