TTC rehabilitating northbound platform at Davisville Station, starting "July 2022"

Starting “July 2022” — perhaps as early as Saturday, July 9TTC contractors start a project to rehabilitate the northbound platform at Davisville Station.

The project includes:

  • repairing or replacing sections of concrete retaining wall beside the northbound platform (under the platform); and
  • repairing or replacing sections of yellow tactile tiles on the edge of the subway platform (visible from the platform).

Crews are using power tools and some subway work cars to:

  • chip, cut and remove concrete; and
  • place new concrete.

You will hear noise when equipment and subway work cars are fully operating. Occasionally, you may also hear work-car horns. Work-car operators must sound the car horns as a safety protocol to alert all crew personnel at track level that the car is about to move in either direction.

Whenever the TTC schedules a closure of this section of Line 1 Yonge - University, crews work at Davisville “around-the-clock”, but mostly from 7 a.m. until 11 p.m. During weekends when the TTC has not planned to close this section of the subway, crews work after Saturday subway service ends at 2 a.m. and before Sunday subway service begins at 8 a.m.

Work on the platform at Davisville Station continues “until 2025”, meaning as late as December 31, 2025.
