    I wonder if any idiots are going to try to jump over the tracks once the 3rd platform is built

    What is going to happen to the Safeway? Will it be viable when a fair chunk of it is taken over for new platform construction?

    @Chris – Thanks for the question! The Safeway will be remodeled to accommodate the upgrades but will stay open while the work is being done.

    Design is still missing an entrance from the North!

    Hi @Al. The station upgrades are being done to improve capacity and address bottlenecks that exist throughout the station. An entrance from the north, by the Grandview Cut, was looked at. However, because of lower density on that side of the station, a new entrance at that location would not majorly impact station capacity which is why an entrance from the north is not included in the design.
