Field investigation near Lansdowne Station
for future "Easier Access" project



The TTC is continuing its “Easier Access” program to install elevators in its subway stations, making the subway system accessible for everyone. The program supports the Government of Ontario’s Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act. The provincial legislation commits the TTC to achieving a barrier-free transit system by 2025.

The TTC continues to plan and design future elevators at Lansdowne Station. It started assessing soil conditions near the station early last December and resumes thi Saturday, July 22 and Sunday, July 23. During this process, crews obtain ground samples by drilling two holes in the Toronto Parking Authority (“Green P”) lot just north of Bloor Street West between Lansdowne Avenue and St. Clarens Avenue. The crews will drill and core for two more samples in the lot Saturday, July 29 and Sunday, July 30.

The crews work only from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. this Saturday and Sunday with a drilling unit and hydro-vacuum truck. The hydro-vacuum digs a guide hole to make sure that drilling does not disturb underground utilities.

You can expect to hear noise when the equipment is fully operating.

The work does not disrupt subway service.
