Subway tunnel reconstruction done 3 weeks ahead of schedule

The subway service revisions that allowed for Lower Bay station viewing (something I blogged about in the posting 'TTC service revisions allow for Lower Bay station viewing') was completed three weeks ahead of schedule.

Originally, the revised service was scheduled for Saturdays and Sundays from February 18 to March 31, 2007. However, it seems that they finished the necessary tunnel repairs so fast, that regular service on weekends had resumed starting on March 17.

If you missed your chance to see Lower Bay station, you have one more chance in the immediate future. See my blog posting 'Why see Lower Bay station when you can walk through it?' for details and mark down May 26, 2007 on your calender. You definitely won't be the only person there, that's for sure.

Now, I know that TTC repairs and highway repairs are done by different companies, face different construction-type considerations (including the weather) and obviously fall under the jurisdiction of levels of government, but wouldn't it be nice to have construction on any of our 400-series highways done ahead of schedule?

Nice thought while it lasted. Back to reality
