RONCESVALLES TTC YARD WORK UPDATE – May 1st

Posted on April 28, 2016

The current track replacement project at the south/west area of the Roncesvalles Yard has reached a point where the new rail installation is about to occur, and as such, TTC track staff will commence a regular night shift as of Sunday, May 1st. This shift involves track crews working from 10:30 pm to 7am. This work associated with the installation of the new rail will be continuous (around-the-clock).

Rail installation involves placing the new rail into position, welding and grinding the rail. There will be machinery movement, and equipment used to carry out the installation that can generate noise. Track staff will make a concerted effort to maintain the noisy activities ‎for the day and afternoon shifts.

The night shift work will remain in effect until the new rail has been installed on this project.

Any questions relating to this project should be directed to Diego Sinagoga at Diego.Sinagoga@ttc.ca .

Liberty New Street- Public Works and Infrastructure Committee, April 25th, 2016

Posted on April 21, 2016

In 2008 City Council directed staff to undertake an Environmental Assessment (EA) to secure planning approvals for the design and implementation of a local, east-west street north of the railway corridor in the Liberty Village area.

A Municipal Class EA has been completed and the recommended plan includes a new east-west street, extending between Strachan Avenue and Dufferin Street. The new street would be located north of the Lake Shore West GO Transit rail corridor and would improve accessibility to and from Liberty Village and connectivity throughout. The Staff Report is available on-line at: http://app.toronto.ca/tmmis/viewAgendaItemHistory.do?item=2016.PW12.12

The Report will be at Public Works and Infrastructure Committee on Monday, April 25th, 2016.

You can submit your comments or request to speak in writing by mail, fax or e-mail to:
