Castle Frank station gets $8-million second exit

The second subway station to benefit from the TTC's Second Exit Project is about halfway done. Castle Frank is getting an $8-million exit added to the west end of the subway platform.

According to project manager Steve Stewart, the purpose is "to increase the egress capacity during an emergency." Castle Frank is one of 14 stations identified in a 2002 Life Safety study, and Broadview was the first completed, with work at Pape underway, and work about to start at Wellesley and Dufferin stations.

The Castle Frank project was designed by MMM Group, with the work carried out under contractor TorCom.

Stewart expects the work will be completed by the end of the year.
