No subway service, August 29, 30:
Downsview to St Clair West



This weekend, the TTC is canceling subway service along the 1 Yonge - University line between Downsview and St Clair West Stations, while crews work in open-cut sections along this section of the line.

All day Saturday, August 29 and Sunday, August 30, trains operate along the line only between St Clair West and Finch stations. Shuttle buses replace subway service between Downsview and St Clair West, while the subway line is closed.

While the line is closed, crews are:

  • replacing about 275 metres of rail (902 feet) just north of Yorkdale Station;
  • tamping the “ballast” — the stone between and under the tracks — just north of Yorkdale Station to improve track reliability.
  • installing an underground duct bank and conduits at the north end of Wilson Yard;
  • installing hardware to support communication and messenger cables between Yorkdale and Eglinton West stations;
  • replacing electrical components, install wiring and upgrade signals in various locations; and
  • continuing to replace fences on the centre median of William R. Allen Road.

Crews start working early Saturday morning, shortly after Friday subway service ends. First, they’ll deliver some materials for these activities to the area on subway work-cars. Then they’ll work “around-the-clock” to make sure they finish before subway service starts Monday morning. Expect noise when equipment is fully operating.

The TTC is assigning Wheel-Trans vehicles to operate between Downsview and St George stations for passengers requiring a station with an elevator.
