A group of tired and frustrated Toronto business owners and homeowners say they've had enough with GO Transit's new track construction near Dundas Street West and Dupont Street.

At a public meeting on Monday night, some residents described the noise from construction as "disgraceful and inhuman." The noise comes from the machinery driving massive pilings into the ground.

It's expected to take another year before construction is complete.

Warren Kotler, who works on nearby Hook Avenue, said his import business is losing clients and he can't concentrate because of the constant pounding.
