Bell Manor to close for Reconstruction


While nothing is listed online yet, notices have gone up at Bell Manor Loop in East Hamilton advising customers that Bell Manor Loop will close in late August for reconstruction.

The notice (pictured below) list the construction dates as “Late August to mid-September.”

* UPDATE The detour notice was posted this afternoon. Closure will take place Friday, August 23rd, at 7:00am to Friday, September 27th, 2019 at approximately 7:00pm.

When asked the Planning department for the City of Hamilton says that the work will include, “asphalt resurfacing and concrete works. Improvements include changes to the turning radii and reconfigured boarding/alighting areas for both platforms.”

Bell Manor Loop has long been plagued with a very small platform 2. Articulated 60′ buses at the stop only have the front door next to the platform. Passengers disembarking from the two rear doors have to hop down to the roadway and navigate between buses. Platform 1 is no better with buses unable to line up beside the curb.
