Crosstown’s Laird Station sees all structural work on the cavern completed – Take a look inside

Progress on the Eglinton Crosstown light rail transit (LRT) project continues with some interesting images, that also include a new roof deck at Eglinton Station and something to help trains see down the tracks.

There’s new light even outside of the tunnel, on the Eglinton Crosstown light rail transit (LRT) line.

But before we get to that construction development on the Toronto transit project, we have to go deep inside Laird Station, where all structural work has been completed within the cavern for the Leaside stop.

Up next will be completing rail, electrical, and lighting works at the station.

Onto Eglinton Station, crews have completed installation of the steel roof deck at the Berwick portal, allowing them to reinforce the concrete roof and finalize the building’s architectural finishings.

At Ionview, crews are installing light poles which will illuminate the street-level stop, which is located on the west side of the intersection of Eglinton Avenue East and Ionview Road.

And while we have you, did you see this recent Crosstown story about work at one of Toronto’s busiest transit intersections?
