Here’s lookin’ at you Eglinton – The latest updates on Toronto’s Eglinton Crosstown LRT construction

Metrolinx News continues to bring you the latest advances in construction of the Eglinton Crosstown Light Rail Transit (LRT) project, thanks to new images that take you behind and over construction barriers. This time, it’s all about station progress at one of Toronto’s busiest intersections.

The future LRT stop at Yonge and Eglinton might be underground, but there’s a lot going on at the surface too.

The Eglinton Crosstown LRT will benefit the TTC and their customers in a lot of ways, including a new service building for Line 1 at Yonge and Eglinton (pictured below). When it’s done, the building will house the new tunnel ventilation system for the TTC subway line.

Here are a couple of angles of the structure of the new building that’s recently sprung up in midtown Toronto.

For anyone not familiar with the Crosstown project, Eglinton Station will be one of the busiest and most vital stations for the Eglinton Crosstown LRT.  It will feature six accessible station entrances that will allow people to seamlessly move between the Eglinton Subway TTC station and Eglinton Crosstown LRT.
