"Six Points" construction: TTC revising schedules
to compensate for delays, November 22

The City of Toronto intends shortly to start a major construction project to redesign, rebuild and simplify the “Six Points” intersection in central Etobicoke — the complex junction where Bloor and Dundas Streets West meet Kipling Avenue.

The first stage of construction, continuing until December 31, 2016, takes place in the former Westwood cinema lands, as the City prepares the site for new infrastructure — sewers, water-mains, other underground utilities and roadways.

To prepare for the upcoming construction, the TTC is increasing the “running time” along the 46 Martin Grove route to maintain the reliability of the service and keep buses on schedule during the project. (Running time refers to how long drivers need to complete a round trip along the route.)

By increasing the running time, the TTC decreases the frequency of service along the route at various times of the week.

Starting Sunday, November 23, buses drop off or pick up passengers at stops along the route every 17 minutes, instead of every 16 minutes, Saturdays, Sundays and holidays from about 8 a.m. until 7 p.m.

Starting Monday, November 24, the buses serve stops every 19 minutes, instead of every 18 minutes, Mondays to Fridays from about 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. They serve stops every 11 minutes, instead of every 10½ minutes, during afternoon rush hours. They serve stops every 17 minutes, instead of every 16 minutes from about 7 until 10 p.m. And, they serve stops every 30 minutes, instead of every 25 minutes, after about 10 p.m.

The TTC previously adjusting the schedules of the route to compensate for construction delays starting Tuesday, September 2. That day, buses started dropping off or picking up passengers at stops along the route every 10½ minutes, instead of every 13½ minutes, Mondays to Fridays during rush hours.

Construction at the Six Points and the TTC service changes continue until December 31, 2019.
