" ...vast swaths of the Highway 407 Station ... are bathed in coloured light

through David Pearl's magnificent stained glass walls. Like many of the

new stations, this is a true temple of transportation, most of it below grade.

If passengers riding the epic escalators that connect its three levels

feel they are entering a 21st Century underworld, it's because they are. "
