Snapshot of Lyon Station - September 13, 2018
In my own opinion, the section of streetscaping from Lyon to Kent should wrap up in the next two weeks based on the progress seen. The section from O'Connor to Metcalfe probably another month. You can see that the construction sites at Lyon Station are demobilizing little by little, with the construction zones shrinking to the immediate perimeters of the stations in several cases. The work at Parliament Station continues to progress but the impact on the surface is felt more than around Lyon Station for the time being.
The integrated entrance inside Place de Ville in the underground mall area is visually unchanged, the construction hoardings blocking the station entrance and surroundings remain in place at this time. For those interested, there is construction work happening inside Place de Ville by the twin escalators by the Albert Street entrance. The escalators are being replaced with newer models. A temporary stairway will be constructed in the near future in the closed off section. This is no doubt in anticipation of increased traffic from the Lyon Station and the old legacy single file escalators not being up to the task of carrying that capacity.
