Construction Update - March 22, 2018

TTC’s Easier Access Program will make all subway stations accessible. Construction started on April 1, 2018 to make Wellesley Station accessible by late 2020.

This project will include the following station improvements:

  • Two new elevators to access southbound and northbound platforms
  • Improved signage including wayfinding
  • Security cameras along the accessible path

Work description

Effective April 1, the bus loop has been closed for approximately eight months to safely complete new elevator shaft construction. Construction vehicles and equipment are present and continue to access the bus roadway.

Work hours

Most work will take place from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., with some exceptions outside of these hours.

TTC service

Subway service will be unaffected and the station will be open for fare purchases.

During the bus loop closure, customers can board 94 Wellesley buses outside the station on Wellesley Street:
