Description

A few dozen of us, residents and business owners in the immediate area of this intersection have been trying, for months now, to get something done to alleviate the atrocious noises being made night and day.

Six days a week, starting as early as 3:15 a.m., empty dump trucks heading north up Jarvis to pick up fill from condo construction sites bounce as they hit the uneven pavement at the streetcar tracks at King Street East. The noise is simply atrocious as metal hits metal and the box reverberates, jolting many of us awake. This noise re-occurs every 15 – 20 minutes or so from then all through the day. The noise is so loud that pedestrians in the area often wince on hearing it.
We have been in touch with Councillor Pam McConnell and her staff for months now in an effort to alleviate this problem. If you can help us in any way, we would be most grateful. If you would care to meet with a few of us in the area for a chat over coffee, we’d be very happy to do that.

We hope to hear from you soon.
