I'm hoping the ceilings above the platforms of Lyon and Parliament will be wood inlay. Otherwise, those spaces will be pretty depressing.

I know that's not what they showed in the original renderings, but we know the concourse levels of all downtown stations have changed and Rideau's platform level has changed significantly.

They've never shown a more recent rendering of the platform level, and they never show the Lyon platform in the construction updates. It's like they are trying to make it a surprise

The question is, will it be a good surprise or a bad surprise?

I think the data on geoOttawa has been updated to reflect the final track alignments on the Confederation Line (Stage 1).

For example:
A couple of weeks ago.

Worth re-posting from the Canada Transit thread. A little boost to our sense of pride. Don't know if I would go that far, but still pretty cool to hear.

Not sure I would support the 2nd statement with absolute confidence but the first one is definitely true. It's definitely the project of the decade.
