This Weekend, Another Subway Closure

The TTC is still working on upgrading its signal system, and you know what that means.

The TTC has really been on a roll with these things lately.

On Saturday, once again, a portion of the Yonge-University-Spadina subway line will be closed while the TTC does some work on its signal systems. This time, the affected part of the line is the bit between Bloor-Yonge and Union stations. Subways will turn back at both those stations. Frequent shuttle buses will be running as far north as Rosedale.

But of course, if you still want to take a subway downtown, you can always just walk over to the other side of the horseshoe. Trains will still be running between Spadina and Union stations.

    Will these subway closures ever end? With all this signal upgrading this past year we had better wind up with the best signals on the planet.

      Will they ever end? No, because there will always be maintenance to do. It makes sense that an overall upgrade would necessitate several closures in a row.

      But yes, once this maintenance window is done, the closures will be more spaced apart again.

      The TTC told us what they’re doing and why. I’m okay with that, because I understand how upgrades work and I know there have been a lot of delays from broken signals in the recent past.

      I’m a little concerned you don’t understand that.
