Ontario Line

A new 15.6-km subway line in Toronto that will run from Exhibition Place, through downtown, all the way to the Ontario Science Centre.

Metrolinx Property Requirements for the Ontario Line at 40 Beth Nealson Dr.

The property at 40 Beth Nealson Dr., which is currently occupied by an Access Storage facility, is needed to construct the Ontario Line’s operations, maintenance, and storage facility (OMSF) beginning March 1, 2024.

Access Storage has agreed to close its storage facility at 40 Beth Nealson Drive as of February 19, 2024. 

The Ontario Line will bring 15.6 kilometres of much-needed rapid transit to Toronto to make moving around the city better, faster and easier than it is today. Running from Exhibition Place, through the heart of downtown, and connecting to the Eglinton Crosstown LRT (Line 5) at Don Mills Road and Eglinton Avenue East, the Ontario Line will put an estimated 227,500 more people within walking distance to transit.

The OMSF – a critical part of any transit operation – will be built on a 175,000-square-metre site in the southeast corner of the Leaside Business Park, which includes the lands at 40 Beth Nealson Dr. Ontario Line trains will be tested, housed and maintained at the OMSF.

More information on the OMSF site – including how it was selected – can be found on our project website at Metrolinx.com/ThorncliffePark.
