Inspection and Cleaning of the Sewer Main on Greyabbey Trail
The City of Toronto will be inspecting and cleaning the sewer main on Greyabbey Trail from 138 -141 from November 20th to December 15th. The work will involve flushing the sewer with high pressure water to remove any debris and inspecting the sewer with a closed circuit TV camera to verify that it has been adequately cleaned. 
Should the sewer segment require relining, measurements will also be taken at this stage for a custom structural liner which will be installed within the sewer at a later date.  A separate City notice will be issued at least two weeks in advance of the relining work.
For each segment of the sewer, the work may take up to 12 hours depending on the length and condition of the sewer pipe being rehabilitated.  Work is expected to take place 7am to 7pm Monday to Friday.
Access to the sewer is made through maintenance holes on the street.  If the TV camera uncovers the need for localized pipe repairs that require excavation, the area will be restored with sod and/or asphalt once construction is complete.

Walkway Lights at Guildwood GO Station
A follower on Twitter brought to my attention that the walkway lights at Guildwood GO Station were out of order again. I contacted Metrolinx to advise them of the issue. The walkway lights have now been replaced.  If you have any comments or questions regarding this matter please contact me.

NO PARKING ANYTIME Signs to be Installed on Cumber Avenue at both Morningside Avenue and Poplar Road
No parking signs will be installed on both sides of Cumber Avenue at Morningside, as well as Poplar Road.  People parking cars in the two areas are creating sight line issues for both pedestrians and motorists.

After receiving several requests from residents, Transportations Services' staff reviewed the area for any safety concerns due to the parked cars.  The results indicated there were in fact site line issues which required the installation of 15 metre "NO PARKING ANYTIME" parking regulations signs on both sides of Cumber Avenue at Morningside Avenue, and also at the Poplar Road intersection.

Request for Signalized Intersection Lights at Morningside Avenue and Cumber Avenue
I have made a request to Transportation Services to review the feasibility of installing intersection traffic lights at Morningside Avenue and Cumber Avenue.  For some time residents have been advising me this intersection requires stronger traffic measure to address the children crossing four lanes of traffic to attend school. I will advise the community of the results once the traffic investigation is completed
