TTC track and signal upgrade work on Line 1 this weekend
September 16, 2015
This weekend, Sept. 19 - 20, there will be no subway service on Line 1 between Bloor and Lawrence stations as TTC undertakes signal upgrades, part of the TTC’s commitment to modernization.
The existing signals, relays, wiring and cabling equipment, much of which is over 60 years old, need replacing as their failure significantly impacts service. Once Automatic Train Control is fully installed and operational, customers will see improved frequency of subway service, less crowding and greater reliability of the signal system.
Frequent replacement buses will operate between Bloor and Lawrence stations. Wheel-Trans buses will be available to accommodate customers who need them.
Lawrence, Eglinton, Davisville, St Clair and Rosedale stations will be open for customers to purchase fare media. Summerhill Station will be closed.
Alternate routes to subway service on Line 1 include:
• 52 Lawrence West bus from Lawrence Station to Lawrence West Station
• 32 Eglinton West bus from Eglinton Station to Eglinton West Station
• 14 Glencairn bus from Davisville Station to Glencairn Station
• 512 St Clair replacement buses from St Clair Station to St Clair West Station
Please note: Due to maintenance at St Clair Station this weekend, buses will replace streetcars between St Clair and St Clair West stations until 7 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
Regular subway and streetcar service resumes on Mon., Sept. 21, at 6 a.m.
