What Work is Taking Place?

In 2018, construction of an upgraded emergency ventilation system for the TTC Line 1 Subway system will get underway. The new ventilation system will be located on the TTC corridor south of Berwick used for the TTC Line 1 Subway System. Housed in a concrete structure, the new ventilation system will include smoke extraction for emergency situations at Eglinton Station. Fans will be equipped with acoustic dampers to reduce noise, and, outside of emergency situations, will only run for testing purposes.

To prepare for the construction of the new service building on the Line 1 subway corridor at Berwick Avenue, crews will be occupying a portion of the right-of-way on Berwick Avenue as depicted below as early as December 18th and will remain for approximately four weeks.

What to Expect

  • Residents can expect to see equipment and material storage within designated work zones.
  • For safety purposes, fencing will be erected around the work zone. As always, please be safe when travelling around construction sites.
  • All access to businesses is maintained throughout the stages.
