Frances Nunziata has followed up with more information about the John Street bridge. It turns out that it’s a bit more complicated than we thought.
Laura Albanese’s circular said that Metrolinx and the city were trying to hash out who would be responsible for the upkeep. Not so. There isn’t even an agreement “because Metrolinx has not yet drafted one”.
The real hold up, Nunziata’s office says, is that Metrolinx hasn’t installed safety barriers. They are “on order” and should arrive in a “month or so”.
The bridge was supposed to open in 2014.
