March 5, 2016 – TTC Weekend Closure
TTC signal and maintenance work on Line 1 this weekend
This weekend, March 5-6, subway signal and maintenance work being undertaken between St George and Lawrence West stations will require that portion of Line 1 to close. Over the course of the weekend, TTC crews will lay 37,000 feet of cable for the TTC’s new Automatic Train Control (ATC) signal system, replace 2,700 feet of track, grind 6,000 feet of rail to ensure a smooth journey, and conduct station cleaning and other maintenance work.
Shuttle buses will operate, stopping at subway stations only along the route. However, as Metrolinx is performing additional work at Eglinton West Station, the shuttle bus will stop at the intersection of Eglinton Ave. W. and Bathurst St. rather than at the station. This Metrolinx work will also require the 63/363 Ossington and 109 Ranee buses to divert. Please check ttc.ca for details.
Wheel-Trans buses will be available for customers who require accessible transit. Customers can speak to any staff member at any station to request the service. ttcweendmarch5
