Encyclopedia > Summerhill (TTC)

Summerhill is a station on the Yonge-University Spadina line of the Toronto subway. It is located at 1189 Yonge Street at Shaftesbury Avenue, near Summerhill Avenue. It opened in 1954.


The tunnel originally ended at Summerhill Avenue, immediately beyond Summerhill station; the line continued in open cut as far as Pleasant Boulevard, just before the next station. Various sections of this open cut were roofed over as the years passed, and since the early 1980s it has been entirely under cover (except when one block was opened out and re-covered, to allow new construction above it). Passengers who look out into the tunnel on this section can still see the sloping sides of the original cut, the stumps of lamp posts, and the undersides of four road bridges.

The TTC went so far as to lay down temporary streetcar tracks on such side streets as Alexander, as opposed to longer diversions along the streets which already had tracks in place.
This is the only tunnel portal on the TTC to bear a sign naming it: Ellis Portal, named after a street in the area that disappeared as a result of the subway construction.
Summerhill's entrance layout was similar to Wellesley's, but without the bus terminal since no bus routes served the station.
