Light at the end of the tunnel

Metrolinx has announced that there will, indeed, be light at the end of the King St excavation, which is behind schedule. They are taking measures to ensure that the job is done before the fall.They’re also going to work on mitigating the “dust” (methinks “mud” was too indelicate).

That’s the good news.

The bad news is that crews will be working from 7 am until 11 pm five days a week, until 7 on Saturdays, and sometimes also on Sundays. The schedule changes will start next Monday.

  1. My house backs onto the tracks, and you can’t have a conversation outdoors when they’re working. Now this will last until 11?? When my kids are trying to sleep?

  2. This means all the houses along Rosemount, Rectory Road, and all the people in the apartments and everyone within sound of the noise they’re already creating is going to be subjected to it from 7-11: it’s nice to know that Go is sorry for “any inconvenience”!

    The summer evenings and sitting outside has just been eliminated, in advance of the trains roaring past.

  3. Whatever they doing to clean the streets is not working. Those sweepers they are using just spreads the mud around. Plus they’re terrible drivers..they speed I was almost run over by one of them.

  4. Today (Saturday) I drove past “dust control” which consisted of one guy aimlessly pushing a broom around in clouds of dust at the Church St. crossing, and another man walking along with a broom on his shoulder.

    Stir up the dust, and let those dump trucks speed and the street sweepers imperil pedestrians.

  5. what a mess! the sidewalks are all covered in mud. traffic splashes the mud from the road to the sidewalks. me thinks they are waiting for the heavy rains to do most of the work because they aren’t doing a good job cleaning up. they should get some hoses hooked up the the fire hydrants and start flushing all the muck away.
