A glass act for Crosstown LRT stop – Glass roof now being installed over Science Centre station main entrance

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 looking up, and down, at recent work on the line.

Up and down, Toronto’s Crosstown light rail transit (LRT) route is undergoing some serious advances in construction lately.

A sign of finer details being put in place comes through in a recent image from work on the Science Centre station. Glass is being installed – a meticulous process by project builders Crosslinx Transit Solutions – on the roof over the main entrance.

And despite the cold of winter, there’s also more heavy work taking place at track level.

Check out this image of track installation ongoing on the surface sections – in this case, on track pads east of Leslie Street.
