This event is a tour of the station and tunnel at the Sheppard West Station subway extension. The tour will consist of a general overview of the site which will specifically include a focus of the fire protection systems with special note of our 3.13 exemptions of the OBC, the engineered smoke exhaust system for the tunnel and a chance to walk down the tunnel at track level.

The Toronto-York Spadina Subway Extension (TYSSE) Project will provide a critical extension for the existing Toronto Transit Commission subway system across the municipal boundary between the City of Toronto and The Regional Municipality of York (York Region). The project includes 8.6km of tunnel, 6.2km in Toronto and 2.4km in York Region and add 6 new stations. This will be the first Toronto Transit Commission rapid transit line to cross the City of Toronto boundary. The extension begins at Downsview Station and runs northwest through York University within the City of Toronto and north to the Vaughan Metropolitan Centre, in The Regional Municipality of York. The estimated cost of the project is $2.6 billion, which has been provided by the Federal, Provincial and Municipal Government.
