Was there a track plan for that released?Haven't seen this rendering before. I don't believe Metrolinx has released an actual track plan of how many platforms they are planning on consolidating at Union, correct? This shows platform's 8 & 9, which are approximately in the middle of the train shed today. I'd be very interested to see the "final" configuration of Union post GO-RER. This one at least shows the removal of tracks 10&11..
Not to mention all the boxes scattered across the concourse, those could contain benches, overhead screens and more presto readers
Well, they have said that it is 'almost ready' to be handed on to Metrolinx for fitting out so this would be a reasonable assumption.Not to mention all the boxes scattered across the concourse, those could contain benches, overhead screens and more presto readers
Ah but isn't the experience "great" ? the great hall is a room worth seeing unless of course you are in a hurry as mentioned.Today I was passing through the VIA Arrivals Concourse (beneath the Great Hall) when a woman with a suitcase came in front outside clearly in a rush. She saw the sign saying "Departures" and following the sign she schleped her suitcase up the stairs which lead into the Great Hall.
Had I been closer and quicker I would have told that was not the fastest way. Nowadays everyone has a ticket and no one needs to go though the Great Hall unless it happens to be on your way.
