TTC repairing roof at Ossington Station,
starting April 4

Starting Monday, April 4, the TTC is replacing the roof on the Delaware Avenue entrance/ exit to Ossington Station and the nearby power sub-station. The structure of the roof will remain intact and all work takes place on the exterior of the station.

During the roofing work, crews will reduce dust by lightly watering down the roof when necessary. They recently installed a safety handrail along the perimeter of the roof to prepare for this work.

The crews will use liquefied asphalt and a heating kettle during this project, so you can expect a strong odour of asphalt. They’ll also use gas-powered tools and a crane to hoist materials onto the roof.

They’ll also establish a temporary working compound and a small staging / storage area to house roofing materials and equipment on TTC property beside the entrance / exit. TTC trucks and other vehicles access the site from Delaware Avenue.

Contractors and TTC workers may deliver construction materials to the compound during working hours. They’ll place debris from the roof in a disposal bin in the temporary working compound.

The TTC crews will mostly work Mondays to Fridays from 7:30 a.m. until 4 p.m. Occasionally, they may work until 7 p.m. or Saturdays, if necessary, to keep the project on schedule.

You can continue to enter, or exit from, the subway at Delaware Avenue throughout this project.

Work continues for about ten weeks, or until June 18.
