Up, up and away – New Eglinton Crosstown LRT flyover video released

As we’ve taken readers from end to end at every stop and station along Toronto’s Crosstown light rail transit system, we’re constantly adding updates on the progress being made. Today, we take you high above a section of the work.

Prepare to lift off.

We usually start your Monday with an image or two of progress on construction of the Eglinton Crosstown light rail transit project. But today, we wanted to take you up and over with a new flyover video.

The footage is compelling, and gives a good perspective on the lengths – if not the depths – of building Toronto’s next major transit line.

The video features an overhead shot of the eastern, surface portion of the Crosstown alignment, which includes some of the critical track work.

Enjoy the flight.
