The Canadian Transportation Agency has rejected Mike Sullivan’s complaint about noise and vibrations caused by construction of the UP Express.
Sullivan filed the complaint on behalf of residents last fall saying that the construction was having an adverse effect in Weston. If they CTA had sided with Sullivan, they would have forbidden Metrolinx from working noisily after 7 in the evening.
But the CTA did not side with him. They first dismissed part of his complaint, saying that dirt and dust are outside their purview. They then considered whether Metrolinx was causing “only such noise and vibration as is reasonable”.
The CTA agreed that noise and vibration causes “substantial interference”, but they said that this was reasonable and that Metrolinx has been trying to mitigate the issues. They also said that Metrolinx is obliged to do the work in time for the Pan Am games. They dismissed the complaint.
