Dundas Track Project 2007
As you may have heard, the TTC will be reconstructing streetcar tracks along the 505 route between Broadview and Howard Park this summer. This means service disruptions along the route between April and November. Many media outlets are declaring this work an attack on the residents of Regent Park, who will see service along Dundas removed for a good part of the construction project. Here's two main reasons why the media needs to take a breather (but they won't, because they're the media).
- Once completed, the route won't need to be reconstructed for another 25 years, or whenever the street physically collapses.
- If the tracks were left to deteriorate and a streetcar actually derailed, who would the media blame for 'endangering the lives of Regent Park residents'?
