    Toronto Toronto | Love Park | 3m | 1s | City of Toronto

    Pond dye is quite common, and used on rural acreages to make ponds more attractive. It’s harmless to fish and any life in the pond. It also has the added benefit of reducing the amount of light that penetrates deep into the water, which helps reduce algae blooms etc. Here’s an example of it in...

    GO Transit: Construction Projects (Metrolinx, various)

    That's not really true at all. While a 3rd track is absolutely needed for future higher service levels through Brampton, we already have hourly all-day service to Mount Pleasant GO. This flyover means that these frequencies can be extended west to Georgetown and beyond (my assumption is that the...

    Mississauga Toronto | Hurontario-Main Line 10 LRT | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx

    North side supports for 403 LRT-only bridge. Admittedly those concrete forms look a little massive.

    Metrolinx: Presto Fare Card

    Digital PRESTO card now available for Apple Wallet / iOS devices. Update app and you’re set. Just used it and works well.

    GO Transit: Construction Projects (Metrolinx, various)

    This work notice from 2023 is the only track diagram we have for the West Harbour tie-in. It is by no means a technical drawing but might give some clues. It shows station tracks converging just past James, and the mainline tie in just before Mary.

    Toronto Toronto | Crosstown LRT: Caledonia Station | 11.72m | 2s | Metrolinx | McCallum Sather

    Well good flag. I assume that is why only one platform is getting built at first. Procurement award is supposed to happen by year’s end for that stage 1 of the GO station.

    GO Transit: Construction Projects (Metrolinx, various)

    For the Kitchener Central Transit Hub (new project name), they are advancing building the platforms and bus loop in the near term with the existing funding pot. The full station building is awaiting a federal ICIP contribution, which may come this year. Phase 1 rendering at the official project...

    GO Transit: Construction Projects (Metrolinx, various)

    Space ready exists on the south rail bridge for a pedestrian crossing!

    GO Transit: Construction Projects (Metrolinx, various)

    Updated Metrolinx capital program procurement pipeline document posted to MX website here. Lots of GO projects included, along with other rapid transit work. Something that caught my eye was: Oakville Existing Station Renovations: Upgrades including civil, mechanical, and utilities work...

    Toronto Toronto | Crosstown LRT | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx | Arcadis

    Our best hint for an imminent announcement will be a Province of Ontario media advisory with the Premier, Minister of Transport, all PC local MPPs, Mayor Chow, numerous Councillors included.

    Ontario Northland/Northern Ontario Transportation

    ONTC has been clear the Northlander platforms are paved.

    Ontario Northland/Northern Ontario Transportation

    Bracebridge station (more like a shed) has been demolished to make way for the new Northlander shelters.

    GO Transit: Construction Projects (Metrolinx, various)

    Great video, and part of the reason I’m so excited the connection work is finally getting done. Saving 9 to 10 mins each direction is so important.

    GO Transit: Construction Projects (Metrolinx, various)

    Some pictures of the West Harbour tie in track work. No new tracks yet but a bunch of Vader signals installed.

    GO Transit: Construction Projects (Metrolinx, various)

    Geotechnical work about to happen at Oakville GO in advance of the station rebuild (which we have pretty much no information about). See Metrolinx notice.

    Metrolinx: Other Items (catch all)

    I just dug up this tender form last year about a hydrogen fuel cell bus pilot. It is probably that (thankfully).

    Metrolinx: Other Items (catch all)

    Hmmm why is Metrolinx wanting to buy hydrogen fuel. RFI-2024-EFPR-123 - Hydrogen Fuel Supply

    Orangeville-Brampton Railway (OBRY)

    Diamond with CN being decommissioned in next few weeks.
