I think there's a significant difference between making use of space in a hydro corridor where a transit line intersects one, and planning a transit line to run inside of a hydro corridor.

Mississauga, where cars rule city growth
We did a quick drive by of the eastern end and a lot of cables being feed underground in the ROW. Still a lot of material to be wrap around the rails.

Sidewalks and curbs that were being form a few weeks ago that I saw are still in the same condition with no concrete pour for it or being extended. Some other areas has seen concrete pour for sidewalks and curbs. Eglinton could see new top coat of paving by the fall with smooth driving compare to the rough ride today.

Looks like most intersection have standard traffic lights installed and the removal of construction lights.

Surprised to see the off loading area still plank. Does this mean more cars to ship to the area or provision of removing a car if it has problems???

The overpass at Kennedy Station on Eglinton should return to 3 lanes going eastbound in July as most of the sidewalk is now back in place as well the curb lane

The value of the properties along Eglinton Avenue will go up big time AFTER the construction is completed. Stores are empty at the moment, but will fill up soon in 2022.

It's definitely on the way, but it had a separate procurrement from Crosstown, so has its own timeline.
