article imageFalling debris from bad weather causes delays in Toronto transit

By Andrew Moran     May 8, 2010 in Business
Toronto - There is still no subway service at the Kipling and Islington stations after terrible weather caused falling debris to hit the train tracks and roads.
As the Greater Toronto Area still faces bad weather, falling debris is causing delays for the Toronto Transit Commission on Saturday. At stations Kipling and Islington on the Bloor Line, service was cancelled because of a tree falling on the tracks, according to one TTC operator.
The TTC website states that the service disruption has been in effect since about noon, which has frustrated some transit riders.
Another TTC operator told riders on the 51 Leslie bus that there was a delay on the 84 Sheppard West because a tree fell on the street, which forced the bus, and other vehicles, to stop to wait for authorities to remove the tree.
The city of Toronto was given a wind warning and a mix of rain and snow with temperatures feeling as low as -2 degrees Celsius. It is expected to clear up on Sunday.
