8 years until the subway station opens officially. This isn’t going to sit abandoned for that time though, it’s the main launch shaft location for the TBMs. It’ll be a busy construction site for years.so are we just going to have a gigantic empty space here for 10 years?
The City are continuing to press the Province and have them officially transfer the strip of land south of the First Parliament site and north of Parliament Square Park to the City so that they can separate cyclists from pedestrians at that pinch-point. It is agreed in principle and it will be good to get this done, the actual physical changes needed are quite minor.
