McCaul Street 0900


With the track in place, cement is poured between the rails first. This tarp is being drawn along the cement in order to start smoothing it. The tracks 'set' better if they are not subjected to any vibrations, such as that of a streetcar running over it, during this period. On the basis of this fact, the TTC made it a policy to always replace streetcar service for bus service when track rehabilitation takes place. In the short term, this has meant more inconvenience for the passengers, but in the longer term, it has meant for better quality track.
