See, that would've made sense but I go past the area around the O'Conner stop and nothing between Aga Khan and O'Conner has any rail that could have a train on it. Thats why I dont know why there is any green on that part of the line, they should be blue.
If you look carefully in full size, you see that the section between O'Connor and Lebovic have multiple green sections stretching through to each other. From O'connor to the Don Mills east portal, there are many white gaps with small green sections. It looks like it means VP intersection is done all with 4 intersections west of there. Which I assume are the intersections at Sloane, Swift Dr and the 2 DVP ramps.

Can confirm that track is well underway from Warden to O'Connor. From Warden to Kennedy is a different story.

^Took the bus along there today. There is subgrade almost the full length of the route, except for one portion at the east end where it looks there may still be some utility relocation required. Lots of concrete being laid or in works. Another six months, and the work will be very well along on the surface stretch. I'm not concerned about this part of the line being ready.

Those deep holes, and what's needed down below, remains the big concern. One can see the concrete forms getting done in the trench at Kennedy, but not so much in places further west.

Around Ionview iirc. The pavement had not even been excavated, and there were manholes in the pavement.

Ah ok. They are working on the culvert surrounding Massey Creek. I believe they were waiting to finish this section until Kennedy was further along in terms of completion. Right now Kennedy LRT Station is nothing more than a gigantic concrete pit.

TTC Bus Rerouting at Eglinton Station: Late March to Late Summer 2020

See link.

What Work is Taking Place?

In late March 2020, the bus loop at Eglinton West Station, located at Allen Road and Eglinton Avenue, will be closed for approximately five (5) months while crews construct a roof for the future Cedarvale LRT Station. During the closure, the 32D Eglinton West bus will extend to Eglinton Station.

To accommodate the additional 32D buses, the 51 Leslie and 56 Leaside buses must enter Eglinton Station from the Berwick Avenue entrance. 51 Leslie and 56 Leaside buses will travel westbound on Eglinton Avenue, south on Duplex Avenue, east on Berwick Avenue, and turn left into the bus terminal. Speed bumps on Duplex and Berwick Avenues must be modified to allow TTC buses to travel safely along the route. Once the Eglinton West Station bus loop re-opens in September 2020, the 51 Leslie and 56 Leaside buses will resume their normal route into Eglinton Station.

I found it strange that they are installing the bracket supports on the poles at the east end considering Victoria to Warden had tracks installed long before this area. This area only has a small amount of rail installed compare to the west.

Kennedy intersection will be back fill and rebuilt in the spring along with new sidewalks and road on Eglinton where the portal is.

Have posted under Kennedy station thread of the photos I shot on Feb 8.The roof of the concourse is really thick and must be for the power sub station that will be built on top of it. Odd seeing the footing for a tower crane in the floor of the tunnel waiting to be pour.

I was surprised to see that as well this weekend. I am just glad the work is getting done. Kennedy and Eglinton is busy at the best of times.
