Reduced speed zones are in effect on the TTC’s Line 1 from now until the end of December.

According to the TTC, Line 1 Yonge-University may experience longer-than-usual travel times because of reduced speed zones at different stations.

Reduced speed zones are at the following stations, and are expected to start now until its date of completion:

Museum to St George
Direction: northbound only
Reason: rail replacement
Repairs expected to be completed Dec. 4

St George Station
Direction: southbound only
Reason: rail replacement
Repairs expected to be completed Nov. 29

St George to Spadina
Direction: northbound only
Reason: rail replacement
Repairs expected to be completed Dec. 4

North York to Finch
Direction: northbound only
Reason: track components replacement
Repairs expected to be completed Nov. 29

Davisville to Eglinton
Direction: both ways
Reason: track rehabilitation
Repairs expected to be completed Dec. 29

“As a safety precaution, the TTC implements restricted speed zones along sections of rail where maintenance is required after subway service has ended,” states the TTC. “Operating speeds are reduced through those sections to allow trains to safely continue operating during service hours.”

Reduced speed zones are usually around work areas, and are part of safety measures to protect workers if they need to be at track level to conduct routine or emergency inspections during service hours.

The TTC says that at any given time, subway systems like can expect to have two-to-three reduced speed zones at any one time.

So if you’re probably wondering if your train is going slow, there is a chance it is.
