A new crop of Finch West Light Rail Transit (LRT) line images show construction is making strides in a number of interesting ways.

At the Humber College Stop, crews having been working on the installation of the wet utilities. Here, you can see storm sewer construction taking place at the foot of the multi-use path for the college.

At Highway 400, abutment refacing work is taking place. The bridge was replaced over two weekends back in June, and crews are now working on the finishing touches of the bridge infrastructure.

At the Maintenance and Storage Facility site, structural steel work is now complete, and work to get this building up and running is ongoing including roof work and installation of the mechanical and electrical requirements inside the building.

And installation of the overhead catenary system poles has started at the Maintenance and Storage Facility. These poles will hold the wires that will power the future light rail vehicles. Ballast placement and track installation also continues.
