The Bloor GO station  is undergoing a number of renovations as it will be the first stop on the updated Kitchener rail corridor running between Union Station and Kitchener.  Bloor will be a stop for the new Union Pearson  Express service to the airport.

A temporary wood fence has been erected between the tracks and the West Toronto Railpath for the duration of the construction.  This fence has become a canvas for some of the local graffiti artists.  I walked the length of the fence yesterday and I took a lot of photos!    I started at the north end of the fence and the following photos appear in the order that they were taken.

Between the 2nd of October and the end of November when my photos were taken, there were some additions to the street art pieces, especially at the north end of the fence.
