Work description and purpose

TTC will construct an addition to the existing carhouse building and undertake track renewal at Roncesvalles Yard. This extension and track work will give TTC the added ability to carry out minor maintenance of its low floor streetcar fleet to meet daily service requirements and enable storage at the yard. Heavy maintenance operations of the new low floor streetcars will occur at TTC’s Leslie Barns.

The majority of work will take place in the north end of the yard and in the carhouse where crews will work to remove and reinstate tracks, overhead wires and poles. Removal of the existing concrete and track will commence on April 2, 2018.

During construction, there will be a reduced amount of streetcar movement in the yard for maintenance purposes only.

Work Hours

Construction work hours will be Monday to Friday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. with occasional weekend work. The track installation phase of this project may include periods of late evening and overnight work.
