TTC track and signal upgrade work on Line 1 this weekend
August 25, 2015
This weekend, Aug. 29-30, there will be no subway service between St Clair West and Downsview stations on Line 1 as the TTC conducts state-of-good-repair work.
Crews will undertake rail replacement north of Yorkdale Station and signal upgrades in various locations.
Maintaining subway infrastructure in a state-of-good-repair is critical to ensuring a safe, reliable transit system. While the TTC does much of its maintenance work on the subway after the conclusion of service, it will continue to require weekend closures to complete improvements to infrastructure and signals, such as automatic train control. The TTC appreciates the public’s patience and understanding.
A frequent replacement bus service will operate between St Clair West and Downsview stations.
Wheel-Trans vehicles will be available for customers who require accessible transit. Customers can speak with any uniformed TTC employee at either St Clair West or Downsview stations to make use of this service.
Regular subway service will resume on Mon., Aug. 31 at 6 a.m.
