Up close with the overhead catenary system that will power Toronto’s Crosstown LRT route – See the video here

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, after recently sharing an image of extensive work done on the power system for the project, we wanted to take you in for a much closer look.

You wanted to see progress on Toronto’s Crosstown light rail transit system, so get ready for a bird’s eye view.

Last week, Metrolinx News, as part of continuing updates on the building of the new route, brought you a photo of work on the overhead catenary system (OCS) that will power the light rail vehicles.

Electrical towers rise from the Crosstown LRT project.

Here is the overhead catenary system (OCS) that will power the light rail vehicles of the Crosstown LRT project. It is nearly complete from east of Mount Dennis Station to the Black Creek Portal.(Metrolinx photo)

But we can now bring you in for a closer look at these towers of power, located east of Mount Dennis Station to the Black Creek Portal.

Check out this cool video from our project builders, Crosslinx Transit Solutions.
