So the opening of the Bay Concourse is now Q3 2020? So it could be June 1, 2020?
No, technically Bay concourse work has already completed, and out of the hands of this contractor. It's now in the hands of Metrolinx in order to fit it out. I fully expect it to open next year, but it's not the same timeline as presented in this document.

Q3 begins July 1 but the Bay Concourse may not be the last part of the City project, maybe the Great Hall floor? Of course, as we saw with the York Concourse, it takes Metrolinx 6 months or so to actually fit-out a concourse once the City turns it over to them so I would not be looking for any (full) opening on July1.
UPDATE: If @raptor is right (and s/he probably is) the Bay Concourse has already been turned over to Metrolinx!

Yes and no - there are some weird exceptions that made it not quite predictable. (e.g. Lakeshore West) - you can try and memorize those exceptions, but you just can't assume it will be the same track/platform by default because you will get burned.

And that's why the hordes wait for the platform to be posted and then rush the stairs :)

Those extended platforms exist now (and are used occasionally). The new plan (or the renderings!) show they will in future be covered by canopies. We are FAR from the day that they will be operational and really have no details about staircases, widths etc etc so it's not yet time to get too concerned. Relax!
Thanks DSC, I feel better now. It's good to be reminded that this is at best a long way off!
