Metrolinx has requested that Enbridge Gas relocate existing natural gas pipelines and a related structure in the City of Toronto to accommodate construction of the Scarborough Subway Extension (SSE) Transit Project.

The proposed Enbridge Gas SSE Kennedy Station Relocation Project involves the decommissioning of various natural gas pipelines and an existing District Regulator Station, which are in conflict with construction required for the SSE Transit Project.

In order to replace the decommissioned pipelines and station, new pipelines and a new station will be constructed, including:

  • Approximately 300 m of natural gas pipeline, up to 8 inches in diameter, at Eglinton Ave. E. and Midland Ave.
  • Approximately 17 m of natural gas pipeline, up to 6 inches in diameter, at Eglinton Ave. E. and Midland Ave.
  • Approximately 25 m of natural gas pipeline, up to 4 inches diameter, at Eglinton Ave. E and Midland Ave.
  • Approximately 30 m of natural gas pipeline, up to 8 inches in diameter, at Eglinton Ave. E. and Midland Ave.
  • Approximately 315 m of natural gas pipeline, up to 4 inches in diameter, at Lord Roberts Dr. and Midland Ave.
  • Approximately 120 m of natural gas pipeline, up to 2 inches in diameter, at 2480 Eglinton Ave. E.
  • A District Regulator Station, which will be relocated onto a Metrolinx private property easement.

As the project is located in a highly developed area with limited routing options, Enbridge Gas has identified a preliminary preferred route of 800 m along Eglinton Ave. E., Midland Ave., and Lord Roberts Dr.

Regulatory approval is required to begin construction. Following the Environmental Assessment process, a Leave-to-Construct (LTC) application will be filed with the Ontario Energy Board (OEB). If approved, construction may begin in Summer 2023.
