GO Transit told to limit construction noise

GO Transit has produced unreasonable noise and vibration with its piledriving near the West Toronto rail diamond, according to the CanadianTransportation Agency.

GO Transit has produced unreasonable noise and vibration with its pile driving near the West Toronto rail diamond, according to the Canadian Transportation Agency.

The agency issued a series of recommendations last week, after residents along the track complained about the tremors and ear-splitting noise of construction there.

It wants GO Transit to use quieter pile-driving technology and limit its work to 40 hours a week between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. in the area around Dundas Street West and Dupont Street. It also recommends that GO create a website to be updated daily with weekly reports on the noise and vibration.

Resident Sharon Airhart stopped short of calling the recommendations a victory. “But I think in the future, people can feel safe in knowing these big infrastructure projects are not going to overturn their lives,” she said.
