Every journey needs safe havens.
This update on progress on the Eglinton light rail transit (LRT) project focuses a camera lens on spaces – big and small – that offer shelter.
The first comes from inside Science Centre station, where supports for the overhead power line are now up at platform level. While still looking a bit like a concrete cavern, you can start to see the elements that will be familiar routes for customers, including escalators that are covered by protective white sheets.
For the second image, we get to see something that Pharmacy stop passengers will count on when the wet and cold weather sets in. Crews have now installed the first surface-section pedestrian shelter at that section of the Toronto LRT route – they come prefabricated and are hoisted into place.
As a note of their expertise, notice how crews have to work near a lot of urban obstacles, including overhead wires.
