A Junction anti-noise wall group has scored a small victory. After ridiculing him for weeks for refusing to meet with them, the group got their wish: the Minister of Transportation, Glen Murray, will meet with the Junction Triangle Rail Committee on October 31.
The JTRC is opposed to Metrolinx’s noise wall plans, and they have enlisted the help of architects to design better walls. The improved walls integrate better into the urban and natural environment.
The organizer of the JTRC have given up hope that Metrolinx will change the designs, and have, instead, been focusing on the political masters since the wall designs were announced.
The noise walls have not received much opposition in Weston, even though they will concrete and 16 feet high in most places.
