  1. I found this website listing all station improvements along the TTC subway system: https://www.ttc.ca/About_the_TTC/Projects/Station_Improvements/index.jsp
  2. Bloor-Yonge Station set to be expanded. Line 1 platform improvements Line 2 additional platform (similar to Union a few years ago) [url]https://urbantoronto.ca/news/2020/10/ttc-board-considers-plans-expand-bloor-yonge-station[/url]
  3. I agree, Toronto's maps are very terrible and inconsistent. Vancouver's have maps that show the entrances, but nothing like Ottawa. Can't say I've personally ever seen such maps for Metro stations, so I can't compare with Ottawa's. I remember people complaining about the design of the O-Train station schematics when they came out, but I think they are quite good considering what other Canadian cities have. Side note, I hope your move went well and the family is settled in!

    We've seen some significant progress over the summer. I think they'll be able to open the new eastbound lanes over Montreal Road by November, but I have my doubts when it comes to the westbound lanes.
  5. More Ontario Line releases: https://blog.metrolinx.com/2020/09/29/updated-ontario-line-plans-from-the-don-river-to-gerrard-maximizing-space-within-the-existing-go-rail-corridor/ https://blog.metrolinx.com/2020/10/06/updated-plans-for-the-ontario-lines-north-segment-a-better-fit-for-the-community/
  6. I found some more TTC subway station layouts, showing cross-sections of accessible entrances, part of the program to make TTC stations more accessible: https://www.ttc.ca/About_the_TTC/Projects/Station_Improvements/St_Patrick_Station/index.jsp https://www.ttc.ca/About_the_TTC/Projects/Station_Improvements/Wellesley_Station/index.jsp And links to a few more here: https://www.ttc.ca/About_the_TTC/Projects/Easier_Access/index.jsp
  7. The Twitter and Discord links at the bottom of the Rail Fans homepage don't work. For Twitter, it's because the Twitter handle changed. Not sure if it's the same issue with Discord. Same issue with the O-Train Fans Twitter's link to the new Rail Fans page: handle changed so it no longer works.
  8. Took the Confederation Line for the second time since March yesterday and made two observations. 1. The escalators at Colonel By and Rideau are those dual modes that slow down when no one is on them and speed up once someone steps on. I didn't realize we had those and wondered if they are all like that. 2. Rideau still has a faint sewage smell, but it's nowhere as bad as it was before.
  9. New virtual museum celebrating 150 years of transit in the capital: https://www.octranspo.com/en/virtual-museum/ The website includes some "Then and Now" images, including the Transitway vs Confederation Line. Looks really cool. Could spend quite some time exploring this new content. EDIT: I tried to create this topic under "History and Photos", but it wouldn't let me.
  10. Received an email update: Walkley Station Work: Walkley MUP Closure September 29, 2020 As part of the Stage 2 O-Train Trillium Line South Extension project construction is ready to begin at Walkley station, which will require the temporary closure of the Walkley MUP adjacent to the Trillium Rail Line. A detour will be in place to maintain uninterrupted access for pedestrians and cyclists. WHAT The Walkley MUP will be closed for approximately one year to allow crews to construct the new Walkley station. WHEN: The detour will start on September 30 and be in place until

    This is what we have so far: In Project Agreement: A. Uni-directional cycle tracks and a 2.5m wide sidewalk on both sides of Montreal Road between the on and off ramps. B. Multi-Use Pathway connecting the south end of Rainbow Street to Montreal Road. C. Multi-Use Pathway along the north side of Highway 174 from Blair Road, continuing along the south side of Montreal Road with a cross ride/walk at signalised westbound off-ramp/ Montreal Road intersection, and continuing east to provide a connection to the Sir George Etienne Cartier Parkway. Proposed Enhancements
  12. Politicians gathered today at Rochester Field for the groundbreaking ceremony of the Parkway Tunnel. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCRUhFiZW9ep2d4YOEkxMY2w
  13. Highway 174 Westbound Traffic Shift West of Montreal Interchange September 2020 As part of the Stage 2 O-Train Light Rail Transit (LRT) project westbound lanes of Highway 174 will be shifted. This shift is required in order to create enough space for the construction of the new elevated rail bridge that will allow trains to transition from the existing transit alignment on the north side of the highway onto the centre median. WHAT: Westbound traffic will be shifted south onto the current eastbound highway traffic lanes and completely separated. 174 westbound will remain
  14. Osgood to Don Yard plans have been released. Lower Queen ghost station built in the 1950s as part of the original Yonge Line (for long planned east/west Queen subway) will be used for the project. https://www.metrolinxengage.com/en/content/ontario-line-neighbourhood-updates-downtown
