Work description and purpose

The TTC will be conducting roof repairs at Christie Station. During this project, the station will remain open and service will be maintained.

Starting the week of March 26, work crews will create a safe work zone and start installing guard rails along the perimeter of the roof in preparation of roof rehabilitation. The work will include the removal and installation of new roof flashings along the roof wall, removal of the old roof material and application of new roof material.

For the safety of customers using Christie Station, material deliveries from TTC’s roof supplier will be conducted between 6 a.m. and 7 a.m. multiple times during the course of the project. Some supplies will be stored on the roof.

Noise will be kept to a minimum as best as possible.

Odour

The traditional method of liquid asphalt application (asphalt kettle) is not being used. The roofing system used is a 3-ply membrane applied with heat; therefore odour will be less.

Dust and debris disposal

Dust will be controlled as much as possible. A fenced off area will be erected next to Christie Station for some material storage and disposal. All access to the roof will be from the north side of the station.

Work hours

Work will typically take place during regular daytime hours of 7 a.m. to 4 p.m., and may extend to 8 p.m. if needed. Delivery of materials/supplies will occur between 6 a.m. and 7 a.m.

TTC service

Subway service at the station will be maintained. Access to Christie Station will be maintained.

Thank you for your patience as we work to improve transit in Toronto.
