Beginning October 30, 2013 and continuing for approximately six to eight weeks, weather permitting, Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) electrical crews will be upgrading the streetcar overhead power line infrastructure at the Dundas West Station streetcar platform loop.
The upgrade is necessary to accommodate the next generation of streetcars that will join the TTC’s fleet of service vehicles. Over the past year, electrical crews have been upgrading the overhead wire system along streetcar routes in the TTC network.
Night Work Hours
Due to the complexity of this work and complete this overhead work in a safe manner, work will take place between the hours of 1:00 a.m. to 6:00 a.m., Monday through Friday.

Free important October information sessions for Non-Residential customers on waste diversion and proposed 2014 fees.
There will now be four free information sessions, one in each of the following locations: Downtown Toronto Community; Scarborough Community; North York Community and Etobicoke Community (Monday, November 4, 2013: 1:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. Etobicoke Civic Centre in the Council Chamber -399 The West Mall)
Non-Residential organizations may attend any of these free sessions, which will provide for a chance to prepare for the proposed re-introduction of solid waste management fees on January 1, 2014 and learn new strategies to increase diversion, including the opportunity to see and order new smaller garbage bins.
Attendees will also learn about the Special Category Reduced Rate Program and how to assess your organization’s eligibility for the Program. In addition to getting help from the City, you can network with and learn from other organizations on how they’ve successfully reduced their garbage.
