So they're definitely taking the new Ottawa South MUT seriously - these signal poles at Strasburg are being replaced with new ones on a wider bias.

That said, not all the sidewalks have been ripped out yet - I guess they're waiting to remove this bus shelter before tearing up this bit.

They've now laid sod around the Laurel Trail crossing at University Avenue. That includes the area around the pole on the north side where the push button is. So I guess they're not going to put concrete there after all.

That whole crossing is a writeoff.

I'm actually really curious about how it is going to work once there are trains going through there every few minutes.

I've never had an issue with that crossing. Push button, cross.

Yes, right now during the busiest times people are often lined up over the tracks waiting to cross from the south side. That will be a problem when the trains are running. The north side isn't as bad, but still has some pretty problematic pedestrian/cyclist congestion. The mud that will ensue from putting the button away from concrete is only the beginning.

The spray that was put down on the railway right of way seems to be taking effect, there's a line of dead grass/vegetation all along the railway.  Kind of unfortunate it was sprayed so far out from the tracks, and perhaps concerning if you have a pet or children.

   

And at least one of the bollards is missing a reflective colourful post, this could be a rather nasty thing to hit at night, thank goodness the trail is at least lit.
