What are we doing and why?

Crews will be repairing the eastern section of the bus bays at Islington Station (see image). Work will involve concrete chipping, removal and replacement, as well as waterproofing and repaving the surface to protect utility rooms below the station.

During this time, all bus bays will be temporarily closed to ensure customer and employee safety

Work activities

Work will begin at 2 a.m. on October 21 with the closure of the bus bays. Construction trailers, generators and other equipment will also be delivered at this time. Once the work zone is secured, regular work activities will include saw-cutting, concrete chipping and removal, sandblasting, waterproofing, replacing the concrete pad, and repaving.

Work timeline

Work will take place on weekdays between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m., and weekends during the day as required.

While efforts will be made to keep noise and dust levels to a minimum, some noise and dust will be unavoidable during this repair work.

  • All TTC buses will serve customers at street level at the Bloor and Islington intersection.
  • All MiWay buses will be maintained within the station.
  • Subway service will be maintained.
