Around-the-clock work during rail installation by TTC is required to preserve the integrity and quality of new rail and concrete. Overnight rail work by TTC may consist of moving new rail into position, rail installation and rail welding/grinding.
Noise: The contractor is responsible to minimize construction related noise. Higher levels of noise can be anticipated during concrete breaking work.
Dust: The contractor is responsible for minimizing dust in the work zone.
