Two views looking at both the northern and southern sides of the St. Mary's Overhead that carries Highway 7 overtop of the GEXR line.  Oddly, the piers of the St. Mary's Overhead do not appear to have been positioned to allow an additional railway line to be constructed adjacent to the existing line as is typical of most railway grade separations built by the MTO.  Since these photos were taken, the St. Mary's Overhead has been rehabilitated.

Easterly view at the Perth Line 26 intersection.  Perth Line 26, via Tavistock, forms a popular, though unofficial by-pass of Stratford, as Perth Line 26 rejoins Highway 7/8 (after changing county road numbers four times) at the western edge of New Hamburg.

Westerly view at the Perth Line 26 intersection.  As with the Perth Line 20 intersection, a modern roundabout will be constructed at this intersection in the future.  Construction was envisioned to take place during the 2014 construction season, however as this text is being written in September, 2014, and a contract has yet to be called, a completion date of 2015 seems more likely.

City of Stratford

This photo shows the junction of Highways 7 and 8 in Stratford.  Stratford has very few reassurance markers and has removed all references to Highway 19.  Before 1998 the furthest right sign on the gantry would have included a Highway 19 crown; 19 north is routed east along Ontario Street (concurrent with Highways 7 and 8) before heading north along Waterloo Street to Tralee.
