transit shelter “explodes” during thursday night wind storm
Email from Jorhan W.
On Friday, after the storm hit GTA on Thursday night, \"another TTC sanctuary on the subject line exploded in the wind \". “On Jan.
20. the wind blew away a bus shelter . \"
Near Eastdale Avenue,” Jorhan said.
\"Today, the new sanctuary is also blown away by the wind.
It\'s worse this time. glass is everywhere.
\"If someone is inside, they may be seriously injured or die.
Are TTC shelters safe?
\"What we are most interested in is the explosion of the transport shelter rocket.
We went there right away and met two employees of the contractor who maintained the shelter, who were cleaning up the broken glass.
One said it was his third visit to Goodwood Park sanctuary to clean up the glass after the storm, adding that other glass shelters were also broken in the strong winds.
The glass on three sides of the sanctuary is missing, and it seems incredible considering the thickness and durability of the panel until the maintenance staff shows us how it happened.
He pushed the broom handle to the bottom of the tilted glass roof and was able to lift it slightly, saying that when a strong wind blew in from the entrance, it lifted the roof and the metal arm attached to the bottom.
He then pointed to the brackets on the frame at the top of the shelter, explaining that they fixed the glass side plates in place.
He said that when the gust of wind blowing up the roof weakened, the metal arm hit the top edge of the panel and crushed them.
He said the shelters that had already exploded were more likely to be hit by the wind and were high
The high-rise building next to the Goodwood sanctuary creates a wind vortex that adds strength to the gusts in the storm.
This is equivalent to a design flaw that can at least make some temporary shelters a poor place to escape from the storm.
But who knows which one?
If anyone else knows of a glass-broken shelter after last week\'s storm, please let us know.
Status quo: Carly Hinks, furniture manager, city street, sent us an email saying: \"This is the first time I have heard about this issue and I am also worried, adding that she is looking into the matter.
