Take an overhead drone view of Keelesdale Station

We’ve been pretty diligent about bringing you the latest words and images from the Eglinton Crosstown light rail transit project. And drone footage is among the content Metrolinx News readers seem to like the most. So strap in, as we take flight over progress on Keelesdale Station.

We’re lifting off again.

Located at the intersection of Keele Street, Trethewey Drive, and Eglinton Avenue West, soar above the new Keelesdale Station in the latest Crosstown video.

The station, which is expected to reach completion later this year, will be the second stop heading east on the Crosstown Light Rail Transit (LRT) line.

The station will have three entrances, the main, fully accessible entrance at the northeast corner of Eglinton and Trethewey, a secondary one at the northwest corner of Eglinton and Trethewey, adjacent to York Memorial Collegiate Institute, and a third at the southeast corner of Eglinton and Keele.

The station will include an off-street bus loop with four bus bays to serve TTC buses. There will also be on-street connections to TTC buses.

There will be a landscaped outdoor public space outside of the northeast station entrance and 60 outdoor bicycle parking spaces.
