Scarborough subway logo2.pngTTC contractors continue geotechnical drilling and general surveying in various locations to prepare for the future extension of Line 2 (Bloor - Danforth) to Scarborough Centre.

They started working to determine the underground conditions along the future subway corridor last October to determine the exact location of surface and underground infrastructure.

This weekend, the crews work on Triton Road west of McCowan Road — the site of the future Scarborough Centre Station and bus terminal — blocking the usual route for TTC and GO Transit buses entering and exiting the current station and terminal.
