Dundas Station is closed all weekend long

Sep 15 2017, 9:33 pm

The TTC has begun installing the final wave of its new gates at Dundas Station this week.

According to the transit commission, the new paddle-style fare gates with PRESTO are now being installed at the remaining 25 subway stations and more than 50 entrances that still have turnstiles, which date back to the 50s and 60s.

Installation at Dundas Station has been taking place all week and will continue this weekend, resulting in the station’s full closure from September 15 to 17.

Because Dundas Station is one of the city’s busiest, with tighter fare lines, closing for the weekend is necessary to complete the construction, according to the TTC. During these times, subway trains will pass through the station without stopping.

Dundas Station will close as follows:

11 pm nightly: Sept. 10 -14 AND Sept. 18 to mid-October
– Weekend closure: Friday, September 15 at 11 pm until 6 am Monday, September 18

Following this week, closures for fare gate construction will be as follows:

King Station:
10 pm nightly, Sept. 19 to 23

Queen Station:
11 pm nightly, Oct. 18 and 19
