Drone video footage from Crosstown LRT project flies over Science Centre Station

The intersection of Don Mills Road and Eglinton Avenue East is already offering a few new interesting pieces to the city’s landscape. As part of the Eglinton Crosstown project, we have new video over some highlights of the ongoing build.

Come fly with us.

The latest Eglinton Crosstown Light Rail Transit (LRT) project video provides an over, and under, view of the future Science Centre Station and Aga Khan Park & Museum stop.

At the southwest corner, the glass building will act as the main entrance to the station. The northeast corner will house the secondary entrance and new TTC bus terminal. Once complete, this new mobility hub will include seven bus bays for TTC buses, with on-street bus connections. There will also be an underground, accessible connection to the LRT concourse level, along with retail spaces at this level.  

Along with the station, two portals, approximately 400 metres long, will guide trains from the surface in and-out of the underground station, keeping them away from the busy intersection above.

Look out for track, station platforms, elevators and have a look at the first surface stop out of the portal, heading east.
