Progress has been made with the TTC as it rebuilds its databases and communications systems. The TTC is responsible for the public transit system in Toronto and securing the safety of travellers and operations was paramount after a crippling ransomware attack on systems. Building and planning is now back on track as well. The KESKUS project bridges TTC subway tunnels, resulting in a complex monitoring process. Installation of the monitoring equipment was completed as reported in last month's newsletter, and TTC has now cleared KESKUS to start construction. The project is looking forward to an eventful 2022 - a separate newsletter will be sent out just as soon as the groundbreaking light is a steady green!
The plan is for KESKUS to be under construction by February 24, 2022 – already a noteworthy date for Estonians around the world to celebrate the 104th Estonian Independence Day or “Vabariigi aastapäev”. All permits are now in place for KESKUS International Estonian Centre to commence construction in the cultural hub of downtown Toronto. Read more here, eesti keeles siin.
