I was hoping the new main track (old service track) through Malton would allow for a better PM eastbound schedule, without the 1.5 hour gap to let VIA 87 through.

With the current layout at Wice, though, the new track (blue) can't be accessed from the east without reversing, and the construction zone seems to end west of here.

Does the current work include a connection here (e.g. dotted line) and they just haven't gotten to it yet? Or will the track sit unused until it's extended further east?

Which end are you talking about?? There is still construction fencing for the west end the last time I was there with working taking place in the west tunnel and south stairwell. With the parking structure in service, the need for the south parking lot has decease.

I am assuming platform 4 elevators are working now as they were not when I was there the last time.

There is a siding off the south platform at the east end and it hasn't been use in the past decade.

If all the southside of Platform 4 has seen clearing, it could be for a new fence system that is to be install shortly or power feed.

IIRC they'll be widening the platform to the south, to prepare for the new pocket track to be added as part of OnCorr.
im guessing it would end up something like this?

Or maybe they will have all triple tracked between Malton and Bramalea with the north most track going to the Halton sub towards Vaughan.

Much easier to read! Nicely done!

Last I saw, "Woodbine" station was planned for two island platforms between the 4 mainlines, plus a CN siding on both sides (not just the north side). Has that changed?
