This track work is essential to maintain a state of good repair and ensure that streetcars can move safely through the intersection.
I know how frustrating construction can be, so my commitment to you is that I will closely monitor the construction and traffic impacts on the neighbourhood and report all your concerns directly to the TTC for immediate action. I will also be sending weekly updates to let you know how construction is proceeding and what steps are being taken to reduce the impact on the neighbourhood. Yesterday, I met with the TTC and City staff working on site to review the construction plan and ensure that the TTC is committed to taking every necessary step to reduce the impact on local residents and businesses.
I encourage you to support our wonderful local business community in Riverside during construction. The BIA has great promotions at many restaurants and shops, and I know I'll be stopping in to shop local! Ward 30 - Toronto Danforth
