  1. Bus stop flags have begun being switched over in Alta Vista, along new routes 46, 140, 141, 55, and for the 44 Hurdman. I find it funny how a bus stop flag, for example, now has routes 46, 140, 141 on it, but really, despite there being three routes, the service level is the same as before, provided by just one route (112).
  2. While the fact that the writer claims the 12 days of testing has been reset several times may be true, his post just seems a bit too sketchy for me to find it trustworthy. What they say is all very vague, and when they say that the city has agreed to change the contract, frankly, I don’t believe that statement whatsoever. The city wants a working system just as much as anyone else, since it means that there will be lower maintenance costs later on, after the handover. The poor grammar of theirs certainly doesn’t help their credibility either.
  3. Pleasant Park/Alta Vista and the pedestrian crossing between Dale and Caledon on Alta Vista have both been completely retrofitted with LEDs. Here's a question for everyone: are there any incandescent beacons (the flashing single yellow or red lights sometimes seen at intersections) around anymore?
  4. There is one at Lees/417 WB off-ramp. Link Despite what Google streetview shows, it is only the one I zoomed in on that remains, the rest would’ve most likely been replaced when they removed the old Transitway off-ramp lights recently.
  5. Some more of the old black and white fence found at the end of Centennial Boulevard along the Rideau River. Link At the corner of Thornton Ave and Monk St. in the Glebe, there are stone street signs embedded into the building on the northeast corner of the intersection. I wonder if these are actually quite old. Link Along Woodbridge Crescent adjacent to the Bayshore parking garage, there are overhead english-only signs for the two-way left turn lane. Link
  6. At the end of Oxbow Ave and Elmside Ave, facing Lynda Lane Park, there are old wooden fences separating the road and the park. This photo was taken on Oxbow. Its hard to tell, but the fence was originally painted with black and white stripes. It’s in poor shape, since the snow from the road gets pushed up against it every winter. Along the LRT alignment, just east of the Riverside overpass, there is a 50 limit ahead sign that still remains. It would’ve been for the old Train station.
  7. I realize it’s already been reported, but here is a photo of Smyth/Botsford St S.-Dauphin. The 8-8-8 on the left is showing quite a bit of wear.
  8. Here is a photo of the new INFO graphic. (Try and ignore the black mark on it, it’s only covering a photo of the LRT. The reason I put that is because on the glass there is a sticker that is just not appropriate for this, so I decided to scribble it out.)
  9. I was thinking that I should’ve put “Accoding to the OC Transpo website...” since I didn’t hear anything on here before I posted it.
  10. OC Transpo have posted the Fall service change on their website: https://www.octranspo.com/en/plan-your-trip/service-changes/ -There aren’t any significant changes, since the LRT service changes will be rolling out not long after anyways. Also, the Blair overpass reopened completely today.
  11. Walkley/McCarthy Prince of Wales/Bankfield -There are also some 12-12-12s at this intersection All railway crossings inside the Greenbelt (Pleasant Park, Billings Pedestrian crossing, Michael, McCarthy and farther out Corkstown, Merivale), except maybe Conroy, have been converted to LED signals. Pleasant Park and Billings still have mechanical bells (not sure about the rest).
  12. Along Alta Vista Drive: Alta Vista/Heron -Some incandescent straight and left turn arrows, among others. Alta Vista/Randall Alta Vista/Kilborn -All traffic signal are LED I believe, except the one at the southwest corner of the intersection because it was hit by a car one morning a couple years back. Alta Vista/Pleasant Park -Some are still incandescent, not all. Also in the Google Streetview link from 2012 you can see a 149 that, at the time, still displayed "via Pleasant Park" instead of just "Elmvale". Alta Vista/Smyth Can't recall if this intersection has been fully converted or not, mainly posted it here because it used to have the impressive 12-8-8-12-12 left turn signals. Alta Vista/Dorion Alta Vista Towers pedestrian crossing -Interestingly, the two 8-8-8's with no shield use two different styles of mounts to the pole. Others I am aware of: Walkley/Ryder -Possible that it has been converted since I last went thru, as its been awhile. Bank/Lamira -Only a couple incandescent signals left. Heron/Clover -A pretty funky intersection in general, an example being a mix of incandescent and LED pedestrian signals. And finally, a question: under which topic should I put railway crossing signals?
