^ Cool to see the pillars will have a curved shape as they meet the guideway. Although I can't remember if they'll all be like that.
A quick google shows both round and rectangular, but the renders in the most recent material mostly appear to show round pillars, but with larger non-circular structures at the crossing points.

Happy to read that they're using the broadband / white noise backup alarms. A friend felt forced to move out of a decent apartment in uptown Waterloo during Ion's overnight construction period because even with foam ear plugs in the beeping backup alarms were just too much for her to sleep through. :-(

^One wonders how many caissons in total, and what the spacing is between piers.

The work proceeds down the line, so not too many nights’ disruption in any one spot.

It’s certainly a much shorter period of unpleasantness than, say, the pile driving for the West Toronto tunnels.
