The lack of a northern East-West connection between the two arms of line 1 really is a glaring omission in terms of making a functional network.
That's why that section of the 407 transitway makes sense for when the Young North extension is built. Unionville to 407 station on line 1, providing a rapid connection between the Stoufville line, Young Line, Barrie Line, and Spadina Line.

I saw signs up around Pharmacy, Golden Mile and VP saying testing was commencing soon. My guess is they will stuff them in Kennedy or Laird for the moment (if that is even an option)
And underground at Science Centre Station.

Interesting that the entrance to the portal is made of block wall in the inner portion rather than formed concrete walls
The poured concrete is where they need strength - it's load bearing.

The concrete block is used where strength isn't needed, but physical separation is, for things such as ventilation or fire separation.
