Work continues to progress at Convent Glen Station. The work occurring involves realigning the highway lanes, first towards the median, to enable the necessary work to be completed on the sides to allow for the highway to separate further. The lanes will then be realigned outwards to clear the median for station construction. You can also observe work involving underground infrastructure on the near side of the highway.
This snapshot update is the second in the series for Stage 2 LRT.
Over the course of the next several years, the O-Train Line 1 : Confederation Line will be extended eastward from Blair to Place d'Orleans and beyond to Trim. While construction at this station has not begun, this entry is a look at the present station and location, as well as a discussion of what is to come and where everything will be once construction is completed.
