What Work is Taking Place?

Permanent works in the excavated caverns at Avenue Station are now underway. One frequent activity to support the permanent works will be concrete pours. The first pour was completed in late June and the pours will now be ongoing over the next year. Concrete pours will occur approximately once per week. The work will begin as early as 3 a.m. and will be ongoing for approximately 16 hours. The concrete will form parts of the permanent station structure underground. 

Concrete trucks will be staged in the existing laydown area on the north side of Eglinton Avenue and exit the site at the gate on the west end of the site. Some of the trucks will be required to back into the west gate of the secondary entrance due to coordination with other construction activities that will be underway during the concrete pour.  

Hours of Work
  • Work is planned between 3:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. from August 2019 to mid-2020.    
  • Work may be rescheduled due to weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances.
