Beginning on October 21, 2018 until October 31, 2018, a generator (on TTC property at the Lansdowne Station- Emerson entrance) will run overnight and is required to perform electrical work within the station in support of the switchboard upgrade. This particular generator is the quietest model for work in the city.

The TTC will be installing elevators to make Lansdowne Station accessible in 2019. In preparation for the future work, Lansdowne Station will be equipped with a new switchboard system. Work will take place beside the Emerson Avenue Automatic Entrance.

Work and noise details

  • Work to replace the roof of the vault and to upgrade the switchboard is required.
  • Crews, trucks and equipment will be on site throughout the project.
  • Toronto Hydro crews will be on site to perform power upgrade work.
  • Generators will be delivered to the area in front of the entrance in case of emergency. These generators will be on site until this phase of the project is completed.
  • Emerson Avenue Automatic Entrance will remain open for customer use throughout construction.

Emerson Community Garden

Work will take place close to the garden. Crews will need to access this area; any vegetation affected during this work will be removed and restored. Trees will be protected.

Work hours

For safety, some work and the initial set-up and removal of the access area will occur overnight through the entrance doors at the station.
