HWY 7 #12 - © Cameron Bevers             HWY 7 #13 - © Cameron Bevers

Left - Old Hwy 7 alignment at Mount Pleasant, just west of Brampton in early 2003. Note the newer railway overhead at right, which caused this portion of the highway to be abandoned. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Right - Old Hwy 7 alignment at Mount Pleasant. This was the best example of original white centre lines that I had ever encountered on an Ontario highway. Unfortunately, a considerable portion of this abandoned alignment was torn up in 2004, during the construction of the Mount Pleasant GO Station. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Left - Abandoned Mount Pleasant alignment in October 2004, shortly before being removed. See an Enlarged Photo here.
(Photograph taken on October 3, 2004  -  © Cameron Bevers)

Right - Much of the old Mount Pleasant alignment was torn up in late 2004, during the construction of a new GO commuter train station. Over the past 60 years, the construction of new and better highways in Ontario has largely contributed to the mass closure and subsequent demolition of many of Ontario's old railway stations. Therefore, it seems rather ironic that this historical section of highway was demolished due to the construction of a new railway station. See an Enlarged Photo here.
