Traffic changes in Weston

Metrolinx will soon be making some changes to traffic routing in Weston. Metrolinx is also extending work hours until 11 pm (except on Sundays) until the spring.

  • King Street will be reopened at the tracks (but remain closed at Weston Road) in mid-November.
  • King Street will completely reopen in mid-December
  • Church Street will be closed at the track starting in mid-November.
  • The TTC will be rerouted.

Metrolinx will be having a meeting on November 7 to discuss the closure and extended hours at the York West Active Living Centre, 1901 Weston Road, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.


Weston Tunnel is progressing


Weston tunnel continues to progress and is remarkably deep as the size of the workers in the photo shows. This view is looking north, just west of King. A layer of trademark Weston shale can be seen on the sides and floor of the tunnel.

Looking further down, the finished floor on which the rail bed will be constructed is visible.

Looking east down the tunnel. King Street is closed at this point.

Metrolinx staff at the community office (44 King Street) conduct regular walking tours. The next one is scheduled on September 19th at 5pm, although groups can arrange tours at other times and dates by calling Rawle or Loretta at 416-241-2300. The starting locatioon at 44 King is easy to miss – it’s the trailer next to the tracks on the south side of King.

King is expected to be put back together again partially (for south-west traffic) at the end of September and completely later on in the fall. More details here.
