West Toronto Diamond: 24h/day Construction July 3-16

Construction update provided by Metrolinx. Please download the original notice here (188K PDF file).

Georgetown South Project
Construction Update

The West Toronto Diamond Grade Separation Project is an important rail infrastructure project that will eliminate a major bottleneck at the most heavily used rail crossing in Canada. When completed, GO trains on the Kitchener line will pass below CP freight lines, and this will improve service reliability, reduce noise, and allow for future service improvements to reduce congestion in the northwest of Toronto.

Annual CP Rail Track Closure
Extended Hours: 24 Hours a day from July 3 -16

What we are doing

  • Removing CP Rail’s connecting track and excavating the roadway so we can work on the walls of the lowered rail corridor in this area
  • Cleaning and reinforcing the pipe piles
  • Forming tunnels under the tracks and roadway to prepare for the final bridge installation and excavation of the corridor

How this will affect you

  • Work will take place for 24 hours a day due to the short period of time available during the annual CP Rail track closure. This track closure is only available once a year for approximately two weeks.
  • This work does not produce elevated levels of noise or vibration. Nearby residents may hear the sounds of construction equipment operating and see lighting in the work area overnight.

Please note: This work is crucial to reopening the rail crossing at Junction Road and Old Weston Road. We plan to reopen the rail crossing in September. It will need to be closed in late 2012 or early 2013 for 2 to 3 months to install the north bridge portion. It will then close again in the fall of 2013 for a few months to install the south portion.

Please visit for updates or please call Kelly at 416-604-9582 for more information.

World Health Organization today classified diesel as carcinogenic to humans

The World Health Organization (WHO), today classified diesel engine exhaust as carcinogenic to humans

The main takeaway is that:

-- the WHO is unanimously saying there is no longer any doubt.

--that the results shown in the higher risk/dosage tests on miners will be born out in the general population

--that even diesel released from new higher standard emission sources needs research to determine how dangerous it is
