pedestrian access
Pedestrians will have full access to the existing vivastations on Enterprise Dr. and, to ensure that this
is not obstructed, the construction area will be fenced-off and appropriate signage will show the access routes.
The temporary signals at Warden Ave. will maintain the pedestrian push-buttons to allow safe crossings of
Warden Ave. and Enterprise Dr.
Markham Centre will be a major
connection point and key destination
place along Highway 7.
Markham Centre will host the first transitpedestrian mall in the GTA, and become a
world-class mixed-use urban centre with
businesses, residences, shops, restaurants,
theatres and a 10-acre world-class park for
people to enjoy without having to drive to
get there.
how are rapidways built?
Guiding Principles
· Maintain access to business locations
· Minimize disruption
· Maintain 3 lanes of traffic
· Clean and safe work site
Currently underway
Complete
Phase 1 : Concept Design
Phase 2 : Preliminary Design
Fall 2009 and forward
Phase 3 : Construction Phases
·Development of
design elements
·Construction drawings
·Sequencing / scheduling
of construction
·Utility relocation
·Road widening – one side
at a time, including
boulevards and planting
·Construct rapidways and
stations down middle
of road
environmental controls
In order to minimize environmental impact to the river course, silt fencing will be erected around the work. This effectively
minimizes silty water entering the river. Upon completion of construction, the use of a rip-rap lined channel and rock system
will filter the surface run-off water as it flows towards the river.
· Construction will be performed during
daylight hours thereby eliminating construction
noise beyond the normal working hours
allowed by the Town of Markham.
· Construction traffic will mostly be within the
rapidway right-of-way; however, a dust control
program will be in effect where streets will be
swept and washed as required.
Rip-rap lined channel
Silt fence
construction staging
To construct the rapidway and new vivastations, the following stages are required:
· Re-align existing utilities
· Establish temporary traffic signals at the Warden/Enterprise intersection
· Grading work to establish the road profile
· Installation of new utilities such as sewers, electrical and communication duct lines
· Excavation and construction of concrete platform foundations
· Asphalt paving and unit pavers
· Platform finishes and canopy installation
· Fare collection, communication systems and new traffic lights
· Landscaping and commissioning
vivastation elements
The rapidway has its own dedicated alignment and does not share the existing roadway;
however, it does cross at Warden Ave., Rouge Valley Dr. and Birchmount Rd.
