  • A partial mezzanine, spanning five tracks and three boarding platforms
  • Stairways
  • Escalators
  • Ventilation systems
  • Lighting and signage
  • Foundation to be a combination of existing and new pile footings
  • An existing passenger tunnel to be rehabilitated
  • Roof will be a custom fabricated 3-D tubular truss, with skylight

Construction began in winter 2014. The project will take just over one year to complete. Two of the five train tracks will remain open during all phases of construction. Passenger and freight rail services will experience minimal disruption.
