Lost opportunity to build a pedestrian / cyclist bridge over the 403.
Gee!!!..................I walk over Hurontario bridge with no issues. There is no cycling lanes on Hurontario at this time and no need for a separated bridge. MTO is calling the shots what goes over the 403 highway and a separated bridge not in the cards at this time

Lakeshore West customers: There will be temporary service changes to Lakeshore West train service after 9:30 p.m. on January 6, January 13 and January 18-21 and all day on Saturday, January 8. These scheduled impacts are designed to minimize disruptions to daytime and peak service. There will be no train service between Union Station and Oakville GO during these impacts. We’re carrying out important work related to the construction of the Hurontario LRT which can only take place when trains are not running.

Here is what you need to know for January 6, 13 and 18-21:

Eastbound:

- The last eastbound train departing West Harbour at 9:58 p.m. will terminate at Oakville GO at 10:33 p.m.
- Replacement bus service will depart from Oakville GO at 10:41 p.m. and 10:46 p.m. to Clarkson GO, Port Credit GO and arrive at Union Station Bus Terminal at 11:31 p.m. and 11:36 p.m.

- Trains departing at 9:45 p.m., 10:45 p.m. and 11:45 p.m. will not service Union Station – Clarkson GO. Trains will depart at Oakville GO at XX:25 on the hour.
- Replacement bus service will run at regular hourly intervals departing from Union Station Bus Terminal to Port Credit, Clarkson and Oakville GO beginning at 9:15 p.m. until end of service.

Here's what you need to know for Saturday, January 8:

Replacement buses will be available at Oakville, Clarkson and Port Credit GO to get you to Union Station Bus Terminal and back home again, directly from your GO station’s bus loop. Replacement buses will not service Exhibition, Mimico, and Long Branch GO stations during the service adjustment. If you’re travelling from these GO stations, you have the following options:

PRESTO machines will be available for you to use at Oakville, Clarkson and Port Credit GO bus loops and Union Station Bus Terminal.

- Tap on the device near your station bus loop or Union Station Bus Terminal when boarding and exiting replacement buses.
- Customers with default trips on their PRESTO Card will need to override their default by pressing the "Override" button on the PRESTO device, then tap your card as you normally would.

Pay before you board with these easy options:

- Buy your GO Transit tickets online to enjoy the ease and convenience of a GO Transit e-ticket or take advantage of one of the GO Transit Weekend Pass options.
- Ticket vending machines are available at stations to purchase a paper ticket.
- Mobile users – whether you have an Android or an iPhone – can instantly load funds and passes onto your PRESTO card.

These service changes allow us to carry out important construction work to expand your transit network and get you where you need to go.
- The pushbox installation is a significant milestone in the completion of the Hurontario LRT construction.
- This construction work can only be completed when trains are not running in the construction area.

Based on what I saw today, The Tunnel Section At Port Credit will not be move this month.

Cannot tell if the roof has been pour or not, but the equipment to top it is there and cover up.

They are still digging the trench for the hydrology system to push the Tunnel Section, with the beams store on the grass area on the north side of the parking lot. Very small crew on site today.

Going out on the limb, the 2 line closures for this month is to remove the earth embankment on both side of the corridor to prepare the area to have less earth to push through. Also getting ready to start work on the Mary Fix Creek rebuilt project that is in the way of the LRT line.

The Drone folks will get a better shot of the area than I could get today.

I still can’t believe this thing isn’t ending at lakeshore. I mean as a Torontonian it was very annoying living in the suburbs and trying to get to the lake via Yonge. But at least they had a street car to get you the last leg. And here we are for Brampton and Mississauga residents who only have access to transit will have to walk the last little bit. It’s almost like the lakeshore people don’t want the lrt transit people too close. Kind of like how bayview village mall refused to build a subway to mall entrance because god forbid transit users have easy access to their fancy mall. I can’t say I hate this project but the one place I want to get to I can’t. Which makes this whole damn thing annoying. Actually I can’t get to the rose theatre either. Ugh.

If they added a stop at LakeShore while keeping Port Credit station, people on Urban Toronto would complain about stops being too close together and how it isn't rapid transit because of that.

That said, given the future density of the area, the business case for a ~3 stop surface extension westbound on LakeShore to Mississauga Road or Benson Ave seems fairly strong; at least as strong as proposed Brampton extensions.

It's 230metres from the foot of 10 and lakeshore. Effectively, the thing does end at Lakeshore.
If it is so close which I agree it is then it should have had an extra stop or a extra long underground platform. Either way this is far from ideal.

Brampton has a ton of Zum routes that are extremely frequent and useful.

Actually, that is what happened. There was going to be one more stop in Port Credit on Port Street East, one block south of Lakeshore.

Before Brampton narrowly rejected the Main Street section (to appease old rich white guys) Mississauga cut the LRT back to Port Credit GO to appease NIMBYs there.
