Alternate Caption: 20140821. Pigeons use the subway too.
If you are taking the Yonge line, enter from the east doors (farthest) and if you are taking the University line, enter from the west doors (closest). What concerns me is if you want to go into the underground PATH, you must come through the west doors or you will be met by a bank of 17 turnstiles where once you could just walk through.
Apologies for suggesting the entire platform was narrow. Will this platform change from white to grey over time from subway train grime?
The new platform services trains heading northbound on the Yonge line. Note: a) the wayfinding signage above the train (similar to stations to the north), b) the ceiling panels that snap in/out of place allowing easy access for servicing, c) the exposed concrete floors and d) the matte wall tiles with the occasion glossy ones thrown in.
Rosedale opened along with all the subway stations on the Yonge line from Union to Eglinton.
The station’s glass roof featured a light installation called “Arc en Ciel” by Michael Hayden that stopped working in the mid-1990s. This installation may be restored with LED lighting.
Queen’s Park subway opened in 1964 and the Ontario Power building in the background was completed in 1976.
Specifically, the underground pedestrian tunnel links to south basement of the Whitney Block directly across the street from the Ontario Legislative Building and is the property of the province. A security guard is posted at the entrance to the tunnel.
This design provides a larger space to wait indoors for your bus but the single set of sliding doors and the narrow staircase will act as bottlenecks during rush hour. What do you think of the design?
