The TTC has announced that the track east of Spadina on Queen’s Quay will be shut down for repairs starting Monday, April 16 until Monday, May 7. During this time:
- 509 Harbourfront cars will operate between Exhibition Loop and Spadina Loop (at Queen’s Quay)
- 510 Spadina cars will operate between Spadina Station and Spadina Loop
From May 6 onward, the 510 service is scheduled to only operate as far south as Queen’s Quay, and the 509 service will be the only route running through to Union. This effectively means that the last day for 510 Union service is Sunday, April 15.
Preliminary information from Waterfront Toronto about the Queen’s Quay West project indicates that early utility work will start in May, and major construction in July. WFT expects to hold a public briefing with details of the construction staging in early May. Until now, the problem with nailing down the schedule has rested with utilities that were unwilling to commit to specific work dates. (This is not unlike the situation we encountered on St. Clair.)
There is no information yet on how TTC service will operate during the construction period.
