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.
