Sullivan: Enough is enough.

Living in Weston, it’s hard to miss the constant reminders of a major construction project under way. The noise of machinery, diesel horns warning track workers, dust, road closures or the plain inconvenience of having to figure out how to get from one place to another have made living in Weston less than ideal. Now it seems that Metrolinx wants to extend work hours up to 18 per day.

As a result of the extended hours, along with other issues around construction of the U.P. Express line, MP Mike Sullivan has initiated a formal complaint to the Canadian Transportation Agency and has notified Transportation Minister Glen Murray and Metrolinx President Bruce McCuaig.

Read Sullivan’s letter below.

In the past, the CTA has ruled against excessive community disruption by GO / Metrolinx and federal courts have upheld the ruling. Let’s hope that Metrolinx can be a bit more considerate of residents’ concerns and act quickly on this.

  1. It is almost impossible to move around in Weston, and when you can get through the streets are impossibly muddy and dusty and you endure a barrage of racing dump trucks and cement trucks. It’s just plain unsafe to walk, and all the community liaising money that Metrolinx has spent has been on talk and no action.
    Even the antiquated city street washers seem to have disappeared, and now dump trucks are short-cutting through the parking lot at the Supercentre to avoid to congestion at Oak and Weston. The whole area has been tainted for living.

  2. Oh but wait…it’s mike Sullivan dealing with the issues of Weston as Laura and Frances sip their lattes at the farmers market……

  3. Mike Sullivan’s office and home are right in the thick of things here, and daily witness to what we’re dealing with while Frances Nunziata appears for meetings flanked by police and staffers and for photo op events.
