PROPOSALS ON DEDICATED BUS LANES ON SHEPPARD AVENUE BY REMOVING EXISTING ROADWAY LANES

Councillor Carroll moved a motion at TTC Meeting in February 2020 to study dedicated bus lanes on Sheppard Avenue East from the Leslie TTC Station to the Agincourt Go Station. HFCIA, as well as several other homeowner associations and residents made presentations in July 2020 at a meeting of the Toronto City Council Executive Committee  against the introduction  of these dedicated bus lanes. 

HFCIA is opposed to conversion of these lanes because of the potential for traffic chaos on an already congested roadway. The major intersections along Sheppard are over capacity and more condos are proposed along the route. We are concerned that this will result in heavy traffic in surrounding neighbourhoods, including Henry Farm. Sheppard Avenue is seriously congested when there is a problem on the 401 or DVP. As at December 2020 HFCIA awaits TTC report on the above matter to take the next steps, including getting a petition signed by residents for and against this proposal.

This joins other measures by the city such as the reduction of speed limit on Sheppard Avenue East from 60 km/h to 50 km/h.
