What are we doing and why?

TTC is currently conducting maintenance and upgrades to the overhead infrastructure across the streetcar network. Some of the overhead wiring upgrades are necessary for the full operation of the TTC’s new accessible streetcars.

General work locations

  • Parliament from Queen to King - pantograph upgrades - daytime work until late July
  • St Clair from Gunns Loop to Oakwood - pantograph upgrades - until late August
  • King from Yonge to Bathurst - pantograph upgrades (may temporarily effect some parking - daytime work until July


On average, one to three TTC overhead trucks with hydraulic equipment will be used to carry out this work. While efforts will be made by the crew to keep noise to a minimum, beeping sounds when the trucks are backing up will be audible. Equipment lights may also be noticeable.

Traffic restrictions

Traffic will be maintained through the intersection with lane restrictions.

TTC service

Streetcar operations through the work areas will be maintained unless otherwise stated.
