Rapid Transit met with key stakeholder groups and advisory committees this week

Throughout this week the Rapid Transit Team met with various Stakeholder Groups to hear their ideas, questions and concerns.

During our Community Stakeholder Group meeting, there were representatives from Brescia University College, CF Masonville Place, Citi Plaza, Fanshawe College, Huron University College, Kings University College, London Health Sciences Centre, St. Joseph's Health Care London, Thames Valley District School Board, Western University, and White Oaks Mall. This was followed by additional one-on-one meetings with Citi Plaza, Emergency Services, CF Masonville Place, White Oaks Mall, Technical Agencies, and Fanshawe College. 

We held a design charrette (workshop) with Western University in which we focused on design concepts for the campus area. 

In addition, we met with a number of key Municipal Advisory Committees to help us shape the concept alternatives for the approved RT corridors, including the Cycling Advisory Committee; Diversity, Inclusion and Anti-Oppression Advisory Committee, London Advisory Committee on Heritage, Transportation Advisory Committee, and Trees and Forests Advisory Committee.

What's next for Shift?

The formal 45-day Public Review Period for the Rapid Transit Master Plan ended on September 18, 2017; however, there will be more opportunities for you to provide input as we enter the next phase of the project. 

Phases 3 and 4 of the Environmental Assessment (EA) include the development of alternative design concepts, and the evaluation of design alternatives and draft Environmental Project Report (EPR). Phase 3 will focus on Pre-planning and Consultation activities for Phase 4: Transit Project Assessment Process (TPAP).

Throughout Phase 3, Shift will continue to develop communications and consultation initiatives to work with the public and stakeholders to identify and evaluate design alternatives for the approved corridors, and develop a preliminary engineering design. Phase 4 is expected to begin March 2018.

How can you get involved?

  • Connect with us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram: @ShiftLdnOnt.
  • Sign up for our newsletter to receive the latest news and updates.
  • Attend our next Public Information Centre (PIC). Date and locations will be announced in the upcoming weeks. Stay tuned!
