Station design is one of the most exciting – and most critical – components of The Crosstown construction.
There are a number of major considerations for station design, including: accessibility for people with disabilities, development potential, integration with surrounding communities, and managing construction disruption.
Station design has begun for six stations that will make up the central section of the Crosstown, including stops at Keele, Caledonia, Dufferin, Allen/Eglinton West, and Bathurst and Chaplin. Public consultation will be part of the station design progress. Details about all public consultations are posted on this website as well as on Facebook and Twitter.
The station locations for the rest of The Crosstown line are being studied now.
All stations and vehicles will be accessible to people with disabilities. The vehicles are accessible and the main station entrances will all have elevators and escalators. Each station will also have safety features such as a Designated Waiting Area and Close Circuit TV monitoring.
More details on station and vehicle features will be announced – stay tuned.
Connecting to existing stations
At Eglinton West Station (Allen Road) and Eglinton Station (at Yonge Street) The Crosstown line will be built to cross underneath the existing subway lines. The design will include elevators and escalators as well as stairways for passengers to transfer between lines.
Kennedy Station will be re-built to ensure convenient connections between the upgraded Scarborough RT section and The Crosstown. The station design will also include elevators and stairway access for passenger transfers to the Bloor-Danforth subway line and a walkway to connect to the GO line.
