What we are doing and why?

On Thursday, September 10, the TTC will begin construction work on Stage 3 of the pedestrian bridge rehabilitation project at Scarborough Centre Station as part of the state of good repair program. Work on the pedestrian bridge is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2020. The pedestrian bridge work is taking place in stages and Stage 3 will begin simultaneously as Stages 1 and 2 wind down and will consist of the following:

Stage 3 will include barricading the top of the bridge deck. This will limit pedestrian walkways to 2.5 meters to the east and west portions of the bridge, while the construction crew completes repairs in the centre section beneath the bridge.

Stage 2 involves transferring the construction hoarding on the bridge deck to the east side. The west side of the bridge will remain open to pedestrian traffic at all times while crews complete work on the north and south ends of the bridge on the east side.

Stage 1 involves the installation of hoarding on top of the bridge deck on the west side. The east side of the bridge will remain open to pedestrian traffic at all times while crews complete work at the north and south ends of the bridge on the west side.

Project updates will be provided at regular intervals. The work will take place during the day and some overnight work will occur in order to prevent impacts to buses using the station underneath the pedestrian bridge and construction noise may be audible to areas residents. Efforts will be made to keep noise and dust to a minimum.

Work will take place Monday to Friday daytime 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.

And, when necessary, work will take place Monday to Friday overnight from 10 p.m. until 6 a.m.

TTC Service

During this work, the station will remain open and bus service will be maintained at Scarborough Centre Station. However, the 38 Highland Creek bus route will be relocated to another location on the platform. Signs will be installed at the station and Customer Services Representatives will be available to direct TTC patrons.

Accessibility

Scarborough Centre Station is an accessible station; accessibility will be maintained at all times. Thank you for your patience as we make these important repairs.
