Toronto Hydro Construction - Ongoing 2018
Toronto Hydro has been updating infrastructure in the neighbourhood, resulting in construction along Poplar Plains Road and in the Pump Park. Latest updates estimate that construction should wrap up by September 2018.
Below are questions and answers from City officials regarding progress and timelines for construction in the Pump Park from July, 2018:
Any update on the progress?
To date, groundwork under the new substation and installation of the new transformers and controls is complete. The enclosure and final commissioning remains.
When might the temporary sub-station be removed?
After final commissioning. We expect September.
Will anything be done to repair the park before Hydro goes in?
Yes, re-sodding of the area north of the new substation will start in July. The contractor will have to leave the fence as-is for a few weeks to let the sod establish, then it will be opened up.
Will the fence line remain the same?
Hydro is occupying less space. Along the slope to the west side. They also need the area from MacPherson to the new substation.
