Construction Update: Letter 3 - October 2011

The Long-Term Accommodation (LTA) project is progressing quickly; with six tower cranes erected on site, this is the largest construction site in the city and will create approximately 4000-5000 jobs during its construction period.

Parking and traffic

Due to the influx of workers in the area, some residents have expressed concerns about contractors parking on city streets. PCL Constructors Canada Inc. has taken this into consideration and created a temporary parking area in the North-East corner of the site to ensure workers do not park in the neighbouring streets.

In the coming months the three-way intersection on Ogilvie Rd.—between Montana's and East Side Mario's restaurants—will become a signalized four-way intersection. PCL is working with city officials to ensure that any disruption associated with the changes to the intersection is minimal.

Mid-Term Accommodation (MTA)

The MTA project, which has been under construction for the past year and a half, has nearly reached completion. CSE expects to move approximately 200 employees to this site later this fall. We look forward to moving to the new location as it offers more modern offices and equipment and it will be in close proximity to a number of amenities (local businesses, restaurants, shops, public transit, etc.). Employees working at the MTA will use the four-way intersection on Ogilvie Rd. as the primary access to the site and will park in the new parkade located in the South-West corner of the site.
