Toronto Crosstown LRT | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx | Arcadis

the financial benefits for platform screens doors is to limit the amount of trash and debris that gets on the tracks and damage both the tracks and wheels.
you save more in maintenance than the cost of install platform screen doors

I don't think that's a problem big enough to actually pay back the cost of the platform doors.
 
This is Basely saying Yonge Station is still holding up the opening of the Crosstown line

Upcoming TTC subway closures and weekend diversions

March 10, 2023

The following event will result in adjustments to TTC service this weekend:

From 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Sun., March 12, the 19 Bay, 72B Pape, and 121 Esplanade-River will be diverting to accommodate the Toronto St. Patrick’s Day Race.

Customers are encouraged to leave themselves extra time when travelling on those routes and visit ttc.ca for help planning their trips.

Monday to Thursday

Mon., March 13 through Thurs., March 16, subway service on the portion of Line 1 between Lawrence and St Clair stations will end at 11 p.m. nightly due to Metrolinx construction of the Eglinton Crosstown LRT (ECLRT).

Replacement shuttle buses will run frequently, stopping at each station along the route. TTC staff will be on hand to direct customers to shuttle boarding and offloading locations, which will vary from station to station. In addition to the shuttles, the 97 Yonge bus will be available as an alternative during the closure.

As Lawrence Station is not yet accessible, customers travelling southbound on Line 1 who require an accessible connection should exit the train at York Mills Station and see any TTC customer service employee for assistance.

All stations will remain open for people to load their PRESTO card or purchase PRESTO Tickets and connect to surface routes.

Nightly single-track operation

Beginning at 11 p.m. on Mon., March 13 nightly through Thurs., March 16, trains on Line 1 between Vaughan Metropolitan Centre and Pioneer Village stations will alternate use of the southbound tracks to accommodate maintenance work on the northbound tracks. Regular service will resume the following morning.

The TTC will operate a subway shuttle train between Vaughan Metropolitan Centre and Pioneer Village stations. The subway shuttle train will run on the southbound track, while repair work is carried out on the northbound track.

Customers will board northbound trains on the southbound side of the platforms and may experience slightly longer than normal wait and travel times.

Customers who require Wheel-Trans service can speak with any TTC customer service staff member for assistance.

While the TTC does most subway maintenance at the conclusion of service each night, it continues to require weekend and early weeknight closures to complete critical infrastructure and state-of-good-repair work.

The TTC is committed to keeping customers informed about work and events that impact service and about alternate routes. For the most up-to-date information, follow @TTCNotices on Twitter or sign up for eAlerts.
 

Doors Open Toronto

May 27 & 28, 2023​

See link.

If Line 5 does not open before May 27 or 28 of 2023, could the stations be opened for the public to view? Leaving the stations that are incomplete closed?

Of course, if Line 5 opens before then, this post becomes moot.

It won't, but that's not too bad of an idea

I think that anything but McCowan yard would be an awful idea for a transit related open house.

2019... There was an Open Doors with the Mt. Dennis Eglinton Maintenance and Storage Facility.

The lower level Bay Station was shown for Open Doors as well many times.
 
I know what they showed before at Doors Open Toronto before, yes.

What I'm saying is what they should do is show off McCowan for one last time as the facility will literally cease to exist in the immediate future. Showing off some new stations would be so pointless and disappointing, those are going to be around for decades tomorrow.

Should as well, for the Line 2 Scarborough Extension thread.
 
Hearing rumours this project will not open until very late 2023 and most likely in 2024 at the earliest. From credible sources.

Take it with a grain of salt.

Considering TTC still hasn't been transferred this project we know a for a fact TTC will take 3-4 months to commence operations of the line. Assuming it takes another 3-4 months to fix whatever issues are going on it makes sense 2023 is a writeoff and we don't see this line till 2024.

Pretty funny tbh.
 
One upside to the opening being push back is that gap between it and the west expansion continues to narrow. So hopefully when the line opens, it will only be a year for the expansion to open as well.
The TBM is already at the halfway mark.

That's absolutely not gonna happen, if they took so long on the crosstown, expect some delays too for the west extension

This is what building intuitional knowledge is all about.
I don't expect a long delay on the west LRT because of the issue Metrolink have learnt with the crosstown.
This is why it's important to always have some sort of Transit project under construction in the GTA.

Yes and no. While some delays with Eglinton West are inevitable, its unlikely to be as bad as with the ECLRT. Aside from the point of institutional knowledge that @Obsidian brought up, the geography and environment Eglinton West has to deal with is a lot simpler than the central section. No need to underpin decades old subway lines, no need to dig under and build stations in historic areas, requiring the rebuilding of historic buildings, amongst other complications. All of the stations on EW are simple cut and cover stations with a single entrance that at most, only need to deal with the gas mainline under Eglinton Avenue.

I would suggest the reduction in delays from people on the tracks would be the much bigger savings. Especially for a P3 operator who loses money if they don’t provide reliable service
