A study outlining the preferred route for the proposed Scarborough subway extension has been delayed, adding additional costs to the project.
According to an article from the Toronto Star, the report was supposed to be on the agenda for next week’s executive committee meeting. However, an official at the City of Toronto confirmed that the report is not on the agenda.
The report will include information on the recommended alignment, as well as an updated cost estimate and suggested procurement model. The report was originally scheduled to be presented to the executive committee in December.
It is estimated that the cost of the delay could be as much as $13 million per month, as suggested by TTC CEO Andy Byford at a council meeting in July.
The Scarborough subway extension, #14 on the 2017 Top100 Projects list, is scheduled for completion in 2025.
