A MESSAGE FROM BELL CANADA
RE: manhole rebuilds works currently under way at the corner of Royal York Rd and The Queensway
There are two Bell Canada rebuilds required at this location, construction of the first required MH (manhole) rebuild commenced on Nov 27/17, and is still ongoing, during the break out of the existing MH there was significant damage observed on the existing Bell cables. This has therefore impacted with the construction completion of the NEW MH build as Bell Cable technicians had to be dispatched to complete the required repairs as to not impact service to local business and customers.
These Bell Manholes are cast in place; the first MH pour is scheduled for Jan 17/18, The breakout of the second MH will commence ASAP and is scheduled to complete by Feb 23/18, (weather permitting). Area to be fully restored with HOT asphalt Feb 28/18.
A paid duty officer will be dispatched to assist with local pedestrian safety and vehicle traffic. The civil vendor Beacon has advised that the Immediate Business and customers were notified of the required works.
