CN L540 heads east through the changing skyline of downtown Guelph with traffic for Canwel at Acton.  Up until recently, only the north track was in use through here, with the south seeing it's last train around 2007 due to a broken rail.  The majority of south track would be lifted during 2014.  With plans for Metrolinx to increase service on their Kitchener Line to 2-way, all day frequency, the south track is to be reinstalled, requiring restoration work of this bridge (Norfolk Street, built 1967) and Wilson Street (off to right, built 1902, full replacement).  With the south spans repaired/replaced, current rail traffic has shifted south for the north spans to be worked on.  Other work includes rebuilding/strengthening of the retaining walls nearby, a new south platform at the station, and more in the future.
