GO ordered to reduce noise in west-end construction

GO Transit has promised to comply with an order to tone down the noise from its track construction in a west-end Toronto neighbourhood.

Earlier this year residents in the neighbourhood near Dundas Street West and Dupont Street complained to the Canadian Transportation Agency that GO's pile drivers were making unbearable noise during the track construction project.

GO claimed the noise was an unfortunate, but necessary, byproduct of improving service on the Georgetown line.

But after listening to both sides the CTA ordered GO to use different equipment to reduce noise. GO must also update its construction schedule daily.
