Snapshot of Parliament and Lyon Stations - November 7, 2018

Parliament Station 

After several years of O'Connor Street operating with reduced lanes (mostly one single lane), it is now finally reopened to its full width.
Looking towards the O'Connor / Queen intersection and two of the Parliament Station entrances.
The integrated entrance in 155 Queen.
It was brought to my attention that the small O-Train Line 1 sign went up around rush hour. This photo is from Thursday morning.
And the elevator entrance located directly across the street.
This entrance features automatic sliding doors, with elevators positioned to the left and right when you enter.
The integrated entrance of the Sun Life Financial Centre, approaching completion.
Same entrance but inside the SLFC building atrium. Currently being used as a staging area and material storage but otherwise completed.
Looking down Queen Street from O'Connor towards Metcalfe. The street has been repaved and the street scape is almost completed.
This small section is all that remains to be done.
Looking down Queen from Bank towards O'Connor. This is essentially the only real section of Queen Street with large work still ongoing, but should be done by end of month latest if not sooner.

  Lyon Station

Integrated entrance to Lyon Station in the Podium Building. Notice the sleek entrance canopy above.
The Lyon Station signage looks amazing when lit up at night. You can see the elevators to the rear of the shot.
Corner of the station entrance. The white frame is the station name lantern, to be installed shortly. Further to the right, the wood planks between the glass are for another station name lantern.
The standalone kiosk entrance for Lyon Station at the corner of Lyon and Queen Streets.
The exterior is nearly completed. All that remains is the station name lantern, again to be mounted in the white metal frame. The wood planks in the windows are to shield from view the interior and protect the glass from the inside. They are not a sign of work to be done.
Notice the small pot lights mounted on the glass canopy.
Lyon Station O-Train marker. Very eye catching, especially at night.
This photo was taken on November 6th, a day before the rest of this blog entry. The sunset was too nice to pass up.
And finally the integrated entrance of Lyon Station from within the Place de Ville underground concourse.
All it is missing is the station name above the doors.

As things seem to be advancing quite quickly the past 24 hours, Chris Rands just shared on Twitter that the signage on the east entrance of Parliament Station has gone up. You can see his pictures here : https://twitter.com/chrisrands/status/1060676834692452353
