Toronto City Council approved the Bikeway Trails Project, which proposes expanding the City’s off-street multi-use trail network by 100 km. A multi-use trail already runs through Ward 41 along the Finch Hydro Corridor, just south of McNicoll Ave.
The 4.2 km trail currently runs from Silver Springs Blvd. in Ward 39 to Middlefield Rd. in Ward 41. The City is looking to extend the trail by 4.7 km from Middlefield Rd. to the Scarborough Railpath Trail on Morningside Ave. in Ward 42. This would provide residents with more recreational infrastructure that would allow them to pursue healthy and active lifestyles.
One of our local residents, Erhard Kraus, approached the City of Toronto to set-up the North Scarborough Green Loop in Wards 39, 40 and 41. The Green Loop is not part of the Bikeway Trails Project but will add 12 km of on-street and off-street bicycle trails in Agincourt and L’Amoreaux. The North Scarborough Green Loop is set to open on May 24, 2014. Stay in the loop at https://www.facebook.com/nsgreenloop.
