What we are doing and why?
The TTC’s Easier Access Program is making subway stations accessible. The TTC will be building elevators at Christie Station to make it accessible for everyone by 2024, subject to weather, unforeseen events.
The project will create a barrier-free path from the main entrance to all levels of the station including installation of:
- Two elevators to access eastbound and westbound platforms
- Automatic sliding station entry doors
- Improved signage
- CCTV – Security cameras along the accessible pathway
- Public art installation as a part of the TTC Public Art Program
Traffic and pedestrian details
Erlichman Laneway can only be accessed from Clinton Street. There will be no access to Erlichman Laneway from Christie Street until the end of 2024 to facilitate safe construction.
Noise, vibration and Work Hours:
Noise, dust and vibration associated with construction can be expected with this work. Efforts will be made to keep levels to a minimum.
Majority of the work will take place between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m., Monday to Friday, and on Saturday after 9 a.m., with work after hours and on Sunday after 9 a.m. if required. As permitted, some overnight work will be required during the course of this project for safety and efficiency.
Overnight work is scheduled, as part of the plans to make Christie Station accessible. Noise associated with construction can be expected with this work, however crews will monitor levels and make efforts to keep them to a minimum.
What to expect
Construction trucks, equipment and site staff will be present in the general area.
- Subway service will be maintained throughout construction.
- Bus connections to TTC Route 126 on Christie Street will be maintained.
