I managed to get some up-close shots of the damage done to the railway bridge over Dixie Road which caused havoc on the Lakeshore West GO line.
Currently commuters have to take shuttle buses between Port Credit and Long Branch stations as a result of the damaged bridge. The railway link between the stations is not expected to be opened until Wednesday afternoon at the earliest.
Afternoon rush hour. Commuters are heading back home and are required to take shuttle buses between Long Branch station and Port Credit in order to continue their journey home.
Below you can see GO buses lined up to pick up the train passengers. There were several more parked on nearby streets.
The pictures below show the reason for the track closure on the Lakeshore West GO Train line. The ground underneath the track has been completely washed out. Crews are working to fix the ground underneath the track.
Global TV was also on site.
I got a permission from a homeowner to take this close up from his property. As you can see, the left part of Dixie Road is covered in gravel that was washed out from the underneath the rail tracks.
I counted almost twenty workers on site working non stop. Kudos to them. According to CityTV the bridge might be fixed by tomorrow evening if weather permits. The following picture shows workers shoveling away the dirt on a pedestrian walk underneath the bridge.
