From what I recall from the last public meeting, they are digging two mine shafts at the two corners and will be excavating / undermining below the active intersection while building the station structure. All this interesting construction work being done and we won't be able to watch it.

Those two shafts are later housing escalators and elevators, they’ll be pretty large. But yes, eventually a lot of the work will be deep down out of sight, 30+ metres below. Not as exciting as watching cut and cover right below a road deck.

A number of posts were moved from this thread to create a new one related to the TOCs at this station. That thread is here, and it gets its own new database files as well! Story up on the front page, as well.
