LOL! You expect foresight from planners in Toronto?
Honestly. you expect these crazy short sighted ppl
If Left turns remain allowed at Leslie and Eglinton they will have to be during a fully protected left turn phase which would not be active while trains have permissive signals to travel through the intersection. In that case if you are turning left into an oncoming train you'd be running a red light.
It'll most likely be like some of the intersections on Spadina, where it'll be green for the streetcars and oncoming cars, while the cars in the left turn are waiting for their green light.

Here's a suggestion, add bus-only lanes to the Jane Entrance and Exit, but not a likely to happen due to regulations.

It's very likely that cost was the factor they didn't build those ramps. Due to weaving, they could only allow either access to/from 400 South or 400 North, not both as buses would have to cut across traffic on a short distance.

I assume this will be the tail tracks, which is located on the east side of the GO line.

^Really nice pictures!

I haven’t been up on Eglinton since COVID hit, but one gets the sense that a lot is getting done. By the next time any of us get up there, it will be a whole new ballgame.
