Why the elevators are being refurbished

Rundle and Marlborough are two of our busiest and oldest CTrain stations. They opened in 1985 and the elevators have not undergone any major upgrades to their core components since they were installed. This elevator refurbishment project will fully modernize the mechanical and electrical components to ensure reliability and the long term availability of parts and technical expertise.

Renovations to the interiors of both Rundle and Marlborough stations were completed in 2017, which included updates to the interior finishes of the elevators, but it did not address the aging base equipment and infrastructure.

We understand that the elevator closures will be inconvenient for some customers we appreciate your patience and understanding as we modernize the elevators to ensure future reliability.
