Station construction shows how progress continues on the Eglinton Crosstown LRT project

We continue to bring you the latest advances in construction of the Eglinton Crosstown Light Rail Transit (LRT) route, thanks to images that take you behind and over construction barriers. This time, you’ll go inside and out at two different stations along the LRT route.

One look inside the Kennedy Crosstown LRT station shows you just how far things have come.

Escalators are installed, walls and ceilings are mostly done. It looks almost like a transit station.

When it’s done, Kennedy Station will bring Scarborough residents a lot of new transit options.

It will be a modern transit hub that will of course connect people to the Eglinton Crosstown LRT, but also GO Transit’s Stouffville line, TTC Line 2, Scarborough Rapid Transit, and buses. 

Further west, crews are making progress on Chaplin Station as well.

Chaplin Station is an underground station at the intersection of Chaplin Crescent and Eglinton Avenue West.

There will be three entrances to the station, one of which is pictured below.

The Chaplin team is making quick work of the station’s tertiary entrance, with precast panels affixed along the side of the structure. (Metrolinx photo)
