    QEW Credit River Bridge threatened

    It's my understanding the Mammoet hydraulic equipment at the east abutment slowly pushes the girders across and rollers are placed on the piers and abutments to make this smoother. The additional red structure attached at the west end of the girders is lifted by a crane when they are moving to...

    Toronto | GO Transit: Davenport Diamond Grade Separation | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx

    Imagine the government timelines of Taking Pictures -> Having Pictures Approved by all Parties -> Deciding to Write an Article -> Drafting Article -> Getting Approval of Article -> Publishing the Article. 1 day of work for a website like UT, but 2 months of work for MX.

    GO Transit: Construction Projects (Metrolinx, various)

    Not saying I know anything but why else they would be doing site investigations on a flat parking lot for any other reason than preparing condition reports and bid documents for further development. A parking structure was previously announced and stalled since then, and MX has continued to sell...

    GO Transit: Construction Projects (Metrolinx, various)

    Interesting little development at Maple GO - they have been digging test holes and monitoring wells these past few nights in the main parking lot area. Looks like the parking garage money is available again...or maybe its going the way of Mimico.

    GO Transit: Construction Projects (Metrolinx, various)

    Construction is mostly wrapped up at Rutherford with just some outstanding landscaping works at the east platform area. There are plans for a 3rd track in between the current 2 as a passing track but it will be at the same grade and not added until required by GO Expansion several years down the...

    Toronto | GO Transit: Davenport Diamond Grade Separation | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx

    From: https://en.wikivoyage.org/wiki/The_Canadian "Trains returning to Vancouver would leave Union Station either from the East as it came in from (if turned around prior), or from the West. In the latter case, the train would then proceed North along the Newmarket Subdivision, shared by GO...

    Toronto | Union Station Revitalization | ?m | ?s | City of Toronto | NORR

    One of the worst things about the Union Station reno was them moving Pilot Coffee into the basement. It was way more interesting in the ticket hall and the smell in there was amazing in the mornings coming in.

    Toronto | Transit City Condos: TC4 & TC5 | 174.34m | 50s | SmartCentres | Diamond Schmitt

    The clouds were awesome this morning just before that short storm rolled in. West tower has passed the north tower and will soon be topped out. Also included to the right is the growing Vaughan Mills hub.

    GO Transit: Construction Projects (Metrolinx, various)

    I'm assuming there will still be a detour for the majority of the project and the time savings would come from the tie-in work for the new grade sep to the existing road where the detour is in the way - similar to the Davenport Diamond sort of where the whole thing cant be built until the detour...

    Toronto | VMC Block A6 and A7 | 198.6m | 62s | SmartCentres | Hariri Pontarini

    VMC continues to grow! The planning docs for the former Walmart site have finally shown up on PlanIt. Many more pics in the docs - mods please rename or create multiple threads as you see fit. Looks like Block A7 (62, 54, and 36s) will be the first phase (after Artwalk): The docs for the...

    GO Transit: Construction Projects (Metrolinx, various)

    Rutherford - The West Platform opened today and so the project is now mostly complete. The new bus loop and PPUDO opened last week allowing the final parking lot piece in the NW corner of the site to be demo'd. A few more finishes and cleanup across the Site as well ongoing. The East Platform...

    GO Transit: Construction Projects (Metrolinx, various)

    That site is being redeveloped and the pedestrian bridge will connect to the multi use path that goes all the way south to Rutherford GO. Parking demand has fallen off a cliff. Rutherford is now way overbuilt and Maple also has the overflow lots just north that have opened since the initial...

    GO Transit: Construction Projects (Metrolinx, various)

    They actually got back to me on Twitter today. Looks like Rutherford took all the parking structure money available. The completion of station works in late 2025 is also news I don't think we've seen yet.

    A few more pics from Maple GO. Kenaidan is mobilized in the small overflow parking lot to the south to start works at Maple. Tree clearing is underway on both sides of the current fence for the new retaining wall: The Eagle Rock Way extension for the bus loop is progressing with the retaining...
