TTC maintaining tracks between Keele and Dundas West Stations

The TTC plans to close the 2 Bloor - Danforth subway line between Jane and Ossington stations Saturday, July 15 and Sunday, July 16 to allow crews to carry out a number of maintenance tasks. One of the major activities during that weekend is to replace the rails and wood ties **between Keele and Dundas West stations.

To make sure that TTC crews can finish replacing the rails and ties while that part of the subway is closed, crews need to start early work to prepare for the closure.

After regular subway service ends early Wednesday, June 28, track crews start removing ballast (stones) along a section of track between Keele and Dundas West stations.

They use two subway work-cars nightly at track level to vacuum-remove the old ballast and expose the wood ties that support the mainline tracks. This method of removing the ballast from the track area is quick and less likely to damage underground cabling and possibly disrupt subway service.

Crews have to work after the weekend closure to tamp the new ballast and stabilize the track system into place.

Crews can only work overnight when the subway is not in service from about 2 until 5:30 a.m. Mondays to Fridays, Saturdays and holidays and until 7:30 a.m. Sundays and continue nightly until the weekend closure. Regular subway service resumes each morning.

Trains operate at a lower speed than usual both ways through the work area for during the project.
