Open House for Victoria Park Station

Bus Terminal Replacement Project

Attention: Assignment Editor, City Editor, Environment Editor, News Editor, Photo Editor TORONTO ON--(Marketwire - Feb. 28, 2008) - The public is invited to attend an Open House at Victoria Park subway station on Friday, February 29 to learn more about the improvements that will be constructed there.

Later this year, the TTC will begin a two-and-a-half year construction project to replace the existing bus terminal at Victoria Park Station. The Project will result in improved station operations and accessibility, as well as enhancements to the station interior and entrances.

Key improvements will include:

* An updated station interior with public art, platform-level windows, new wall finishes, refurbished floors, improved signage and upgraded lighting.
* New elevators and a ramp to provide full accessibility.
* New Victoria Park and Teesdale entrances.
* Enhancements to existing pedestrian access routes and station entrances.
* New commuter facilities, including a surface level bus terminal, passenger pick-up and drop-off, taxi stand and bicycle lockers.
* "Green" station and bus terminal roofs.
* Widening of Victoria Park and Denton Avenues.

The purpose of this public open house is to present the design, including public art and finishes, as well as to provide information about what to expect during construction.
