Looking at the critical-path diagram on PDF page 18 of the quarterly report, the strongest one is through the Harold trackwork. The biggest bit of it on that path is CH058A: B/C Approach Structures, and that will start at the beginning of next year. It is scheduled to be done at the end of 2020. The other two paths go through the midday yard and the systems works, and they also should be done a little bit before then. Then about 3 months of testing and revenue service should start. However, the construction planners have budgeted an extra 2 years for further schedule slippage, giving a target of the end of 2022.
