TTC upgrading Spadina Station staircase,
starting April 4



Starting Monday, April 4, the TTC is closing the west entrance / exit at Spadina Station (on the west side of Spadina Road, just north of Bloor Street West.)

Crews are rehabilitating the staircase in the entrance / exit structure by:

  • removing tile finishes and concrete;
  • installing forms; and
  • placing new concrete.

Once the concrete has cured, workers will remove the form work and install new tile finishes.

During the early stages of the project, crews may use a hand-held concrete chipping-hammer to remove the old tile finishes and concrete.

They’ll 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.

During this project, the crews will use a concrete chipping-hammer, a grinder, a drill and a compressor to provide air and power for the tools. They’ll place the compressor on TTC property outside of the west entrance / exit, but only use it during regular working hours.

Construction at the west entrance / exit continues for 12 weeks, or until July 8.


Although the west entrance / exit is closed, you have several other ways to get into and out of Spadina Station.

  • the main entrance to the 2 Bloor - Danforth line is on the east side of Spadina Road, just north of Bloor Street West (accessible);
  • an “automatic” entrance with a staircase to the 2 Bloor - Danforth line is on Walmer Road (one block west of Spadina Road), just north of Bloor Street West;
  • an accessible entrance to the platforms of the 1 Yonge - University line is on the east side of Spadina Road at Lowther Avenue;
  • an “automatic” entrance to the 1 Yonge - University line is on the west side of Spadina Road at Kendall Avenue.

At “automatic” entrances, you can only enter with a Metropass or token.
