New website helps public access information about planned construction work
  
The City of Toronto is introducing a new website where the public will be able to get information about planned capital construction work taking place across the city.

Called T.O. INview, short for Infrastructure Viewer, the map will allow users to quickly determine what work is planned for their community in 2012 and potential impacts to the area.

The map will highlight scheduled infrastructure construction being done by Transportation Services, Toronto Water, City Planning, transit authorities and utility companies. The new site can be accessed at http://www.toronto.ca/inview.

"T.O. INview will provide the taxpayers of Toronto the opportunity to see first-hand the construction work that is happening and will happen in their neighbourhood," said Councillor Denzil Minnan-Wong (Ward 34 Don Valley East), Chair of the Public Works and Infrastructure Committee. "This map is another example of the City's effort to improve customer service for the residents of Toronto."

"In addition to providing details about the type of work being planned, such as road resurfacing or watermain reconstruction, the system will be used to improve the coordination of projects, with the goal of more efficient capital spending and more convenience to the public," added Councillor Minnan-Wong.

While the new site features planned road work, it does not include emergency or short-term work. This type of information is available at http://www.toronto.ca/torontostreets - the City's road restrictions website. This site is a source for information about short-term construction work as well as special events that affect city roads.

Toronto is Canada's largest city and sixth largest government, and home to a diverse population of about 2.7 million people. Toronto's government is dedicated to delivering customer service excellence, creating a transparent and accountable government, reducing the size and cost of government and building a transportation city. For information on non-emergency City services and programs, Toronto residents, businesses and visitors can dial 311, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Note: The media is invited to see a demonstration of T.O. INview at a technical briefing at Toronto City Hall, 12th floor, East Tower on Tuesday, June 26 at 1 p.m.
