Welcome to the Elevator World News Podcast. This week’s news podcast is sponsored by elevatorbooks.com: www.elevatorbooks.com ELEVATOR PROJECT DELAYS AT TTC STATION SPARK FRUSTRATION Completion of a three-story disabled-access elevator at the Toronto Transit Commission’s (TTC) Dupont Station has missed three target dates — the first in late 2017 — leaving disabled-rights activists frustrated and disappointed, the CBC reports. Work is 54% complete on the Dupont Station Easier Access Project, launched in 2014. Located at a busy intersection in The Annex neighborhood, the job involves challenges such as fitting new elevators into an older structure, preserving the subway station’s trademark murals and minimizing impact on utilities. TTC says the financially troubled elevator installer is to blame for the delays and has barred it from bidding on future projects. The commission is working with the company’s insurer to determine a new completion date, which will be “sometime in 2020 at the earliest.” Image credit: T.
