Upcoming Sewer Rehabilitation Work in Ward 43
Construction Area: Kingston Road from 4384 Kingston Road to Lawrence Avenue East Construction Window: January 22 – February 16, 2018.

The rehabilitation of the nearby sewer main involves flushing the sewer with high pressure water to remove any debris and installing a structural liner which will adhere to the existing pipe to form a new pipe wall. Access to the sewer is made through maintenance holes on the street; in most cases, excavation is not required.

 Morningside Avenue Bridge Rehabilitation and Road Resurfacing
I wanted to ensure that you were updated on the work on the Bridge. As you can see new paving, curb and sidewalk work has been complete on Morningside Avenue as you travel north before the bridge work.  The completion date for the entire project will be Spring 2018.  Thank you for all your patients with this project. 

Westcroft Drive and Craggview Drive and Weir Cres. Police Monitoring Rolling Stops
Residents have made my office aware that drivers are not stopping but rolling at the intersections of Westcroft Drive and Craggview Drive and Weir Crescent and Craggview Drive.  43 Division's Community Response Unit has been notified and they will enforce the areas.

Morningside onto Kingston Road for southbound Motorists
A request for an advance turn from Morningside onto Kingston Road for southbound motorists has been made.  I have been advised by Transportation Services that their report has indicated that a Long Term addition of a southbound afternoon peak period is recommended.  The planned installation of such a traffic control feature is subject to budgeting and scheduling. Our office is awaiting an update on the installation time frame.

Former Shell Gas Station Property At Kingston Rd. & Lawrence Avenue East
City Planning staff had a pre-application meeting with the owners in early in 2016. There has not been any communication or interest further since then. There is no formal application for the 4384 Kingston Road (Old Shell gas station) I have been keeping an eye on this property, and have been filing regular complaints with the Municipal Licensing and Standards staff regarding the conditions of the site. Large wind swept piles of dirt, as well as tall weeds along the boulevard are not acceptable.
