King Station - escalator modernization project

Escalator (northbound platform to concourse) out-of-service
Effective October 31, 2023 to 2025

What we are doing and why:

As part of TTC’s Escalator Modernization project, the existing escalator located on the northbound platform going up to the concourse level must be completely replaced with a new escalator. The modernization work includes major improvements to the wall finishes, ceiling and lights.


What to expect:

  • Protective hoarding will be in place to ensure public safety by separating the work zone from the public during demolition of the existing escalator and installation of a new one.
  • Work will take place behind the protective hoarding.
  • The other escalators from platform level to concourse level will remain in service.
  • Customers who require the assistance of an escalator/elevator on Line 1 may travel to Queen station.
