As we’ve taken readers from end to end at every stop and station along Toronto’s Crosstown light rail transit (LRT) system, we’re constantly adding updates on the progress being made. Today, we’re showing how the important work of putting down track continues to shape the look, and future, of the new transit route.
It’s easy to get lost in the depths and detailed design of Toronto’s Eglinton Crosstown light rail transit (LRT) project.
But other than the light rail vehicles to come, there are no better symbols of movement – and progress – than the rails themselves.
In this photo update of the constant work being done by Metrolinx construction partners, Crosslinx Transit Solutions, we have good images of track-work. As winter and colder temperatures quickly move into the Toronto area, advances on the track bed and lines of rail are reminders that crews continue this important work – above and below ground – in all weather.
In short, those experts are keeping the LRT project on track.
And for this week’s bonus shot, work on an overhead catenary system (OCS) that will power the light rail vehicles is nearly complete from east of Mount Dennis Station to the Black Creek Portal.
