So they could put in steep ramps (5% to 8.3%) to go under the roadway from the subway station to the mall. If they can get by less steep ramps, that would be better.
TTC is responsibly for accessibility within the station that they must do, but not the connection to the mall. Up to this expansion, there was no access to the mall from street level. Now there is even if a longer walk. Those going to the GO Terminal can use the current route with luggage, or do the long way like an accessibility person will have to do.Why would the TTC spend even a penny on improving the connection? Would any improvement not be Oxford's responsibility?
Some of the steps became safety hazards due to erosion.The access to and from the Yorkdale Station and the mall really needs to be upgraded. The concrete has been eroded down to form valleys or depressions. The penny-pinchers or accountants will probably want to just repair the depressions (jackhammer out the old concrete, and pour new concrete).
The access should be upgraded to be ramps (under the roadway?).
