Extended work hours at West Toronto Diamond

Metrolinx / GO Transit has announced extended working hours at the West Toronto Diamond grade separation project. You can download the announcement here:

Beginning February 11: Work Hours 5 a.m. to 10 p.m.

What we are doing

  • Beginning Tuesday, February 11, we are extending regular work hours from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. to 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. for the foreseeable future to complete the expanded rail corridor for increased transit service. We will also be working on Saturdays from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.
  • Extended hours are required to stay on schedule to reopen the Old Weston Road/Junction Road rail crossing as soon as possible. We will revisit the need for extended hours in the spring.
  • Work will take place in the lowered corridor installing rebar (reinforcing steel) to prepare for pouring concrete to complete the floor.
  • There may also be some excavation; however, the majority of excavation will take place during the day.
  • This work is in preparation for the final bridge slides scheduled for this spring/summer.
  • The Junction Rd./Old Weston Rd. crossing will reopen after the bridges are installed. We will communicate the opening date once it is confirmed.

How will this affect you

  • This work typically does not create elevated noise. For example, the rebar is tied together by hand to form the structure which is considered quieter work
  • Lights will be used for safety, and we will do our best to direct them away from nearby properties.
  • For safety reasons, vehicles onsite will sound a ‘beep’ when they drive in reverse when necessary.
