Proposed Lawrence East Station

Lawrence East station is currently the location of a Scarborough RT stop of the same name - Strip malls and empty fields nearby might have the potential for high-rise development, but the existing RT station hasn’t exactly fostered transit-oriented development - For example, next to to Lawrence East station is Mike Myers Drive, a townhouse complex built only a decade ago. Interestingly, this station might be subject to further delay as the proximity of the existing SRT stop makes building a new rail station here more difficult - Only when the Line 2 extension to Scarborough Centre is complete, and the SRT decommissioned, might work begin on this SmartTrack station -
