Carlingview Drive Underpass
Carlingview Drive will be designed to dip below the tracks to separate
vehicle and train traffic.
- April 29 – Work for the Carlingview Drive Underpass continues
with a focus on relocating buried and overhead utilities. We have completed
installation of the steel casing pipe for the relocation of the existing
watermain. A steel casing pipe is often used when installing storm or
watermain pipes below a rail or highway. Last month, we also installed a
steel casing pipe for the work to divert the existing storm sewer and have
now completed installing a concrete pipe inside this casing. In mid-April,
we began preparatory work for the temporary shoring and piling work for the
bridge underpass. This work is expected to be complete by mid-June. Work to
relocate Bell and Hydro cables is also ongoing.
- Attention: Please note that the rail crossing at Carlingview
Drive will remain closed until late 2014.
- Design complete: Winter 2011
- Project start: June 2012
- Project completion: Late 2014
What we are doing
- Utility relocation – which includes moving city services such as gas
- Lowering Carlingview Drive so it runs under the rail corridor
- This work will be mostly confined to the rail corridor
How this will affect you
- The crossing at Carlingview Drive will be closed until late 2014
- There may be a diversion to access Entrance Road to accommodate
