Today is October. In seven months, it will be May. Usually we have "Open Doors Toronto" in May. In 2019, we were able to view the Mt. Dennis Maintenance and Storage Facility. While we could see the "alleged" opening of Line 5 in 2022, we could be able to view the inside of some of the stations by May of 2022.

May, 2022 would be a good target for opening of the stations, if not the whole of Line 5. Also hopeful that the COVID-19 numbers for Ontario and Toronto will continue to go down.

Given that there are concerns that I have been pic-bombing and are scrolling past my posts because of that, I have compromised by having additional photos in spoiler tags for those who want to see additional photos and those who don't want to aren't forced to look at them. To view them, click on the spoiler tags.

I don’t see how the line can open next year. The TTC needs at least 6 months to test and commission the line end to end. The track and overhead wires aren’t even installed for most of the underground section. My bet is 2023 unless something gets accelerated next year and it gets pulled into late 2022.

Agreed. 2022 is out of the question. This won't be in operation until Feb/March 2023.

Hopefully this can be the case. As stations get completed the thinking is that they can divert more resources to those still under construction. Worst case they can get the stations to functional condition and complete the minor aesthetic finishes after the line is open. Case in point is the viva rapidway where they took their time post opening to finish all the planters and landscape.

About that--they were still working on planters and sidewalks at the Yonge-407 intersection as recently as.. yesterday!

I appreciate the photos and I hesitate to provide you feedback in fear you might stop posting at all, but I think the point that people were trying to make, one with a "photobomb" comment, is that there isn't much curation going on. This last set gives photos of a wheel barrow, a bag of something, a slow sign, and a wooden wall that we want to look over but can't from seven slightly different angles and zoom levels. If this is an art project you are going to need to add some filters and effects, but if this is to show us new developments then when adding a photo to the website I do think the question needs to be asked is "am I showing something new or showing something already shown".

P.S. The Spoiler tags are genius... I didn't know this forum had such a thing.

I have updated the post as there's a new structure being built as evidenced by the plywood wall.

Thanks. I will do that with many of my future construction photos (unless there are three or fewer photos).
