^^^Ehmm....I sure hope the gas container isnt filled with any amount of gas in it. Because you know, it's right next to 2 giant flammable explosive tanks.

aside from literally everything but the sign looking pretty gross, this is nice. I like these signs a whole lot more than the incredibly dull YSSE ones. Also can't wait for the line to open just to see how the stations look when they are regularly cleaned cus again... looks gross
We can always re-decorate when the COVID-19 bills are paid off. At least the structure is there. We can change the look in the future.

i mean they only ever do that at least 50 years after the station has opened... and when it's in such a state of disarray it needs other upgrades too.
I'm pretty sure at least TYSSE will be refurbished far sooner. It's only been what, 3 years, and Pioneer Village already looks like this?

No those aren't video compression artifacts, that's how dirty Pioneer Village has become. I honestly expect retiling sooner than later.

I mean they're dirty but not terrible or damaged or anything. A good power wash should fix that. But I mean even I they retile it's not like they're gonna change the design like at paper any time soon which is more so what I meant

It has to do with the runoff getting into the drains. The tunnel walls have everything from brake dust to asbestos on them and the MoE does not want that stuff going down the drain.
You would think they would come up with an alternative to the dirty water going down the drain or not cleaning the walls and having that brake dust and asbestos going into people's lungs.

They are removing the asbestos hence the extended closure on University and previous closures on North Yonge.

There are ways to wash it down but they are overly complicated and involved vacuuming up the water much like a carpet cleaner or the platform cleaners. The only other way is to barricade off the drains while cleaning.
