Nope as most of it was done at the same time as the east side. It looks that way due to construction of the retaining wall. Also when they removed the bypass road at both ends,
The video shows a lot of dirt still on the west side. I assume it will have to be moved. That's what I meant.

Will be use to back fill the retaining walls and final land grading. That's standard on most projects like this. Video not working

^ Yes, so dirt on the west side will have to move and it existed there prior to construction starting. Swell, it can be used as back fill.

I always thought they shouldn't bother moving the upx to Eglington. The crosstown is supposed to eventually go to the airport anyways, and then Weston will be left with nothing.

Its my understanding that Weston will still retain the UPX with the addition of Eglinton. They arent moving it, they are adding another station.

RFP-2019-CINF-147: Construction of Barrie Railway Corridor Enabling Works


Anyone knows where exactly is mile 24.60 to mile 26.50?

Edit: according to wikipedia, it's right to the south of Rutherford GO. However, that section is already double tracked, so not sure what else there is to enable.
24.60 is the crossing at Dufferin Street and 26.5 is Bathurst Street, north of King City. Currently single track, I believe. I haven’t been paying attention up that way, but there was a plan to build a service track so that the conflict with freight service could be eliminated.
Or perhaps double tracking has been deferred north of Kirby, in favour of a passing track? That would facilitate some added service to Aurora without going all the way to RER end state.

The tender is just for enabling works, which isn't even for the trackage - just grubbing and grading, and maybe some other preparatory work for the additional track. That stretch of the line also includes a culvert over a decent-sized stream, so that may be part of the reason why they are trying to get a head start on it.

The best source I can find is this


It would show the station being moved, not "New station"


I cant find any news stating that Weston station would be demolished for the UPX.

Nobody ever said that Weston will be demolished. The Weston UPX stop may simply stop being in use.
