New drone footage takes you above and through Crosstown’s Forest Hill station

We recently brought you video of a flight over Toronto’s Keelesdale station, along the Eglinton Crosstown light rail transit route. Now we have drone footage over and through Forest Hill Station.

The latest Crosstown video provide a glimpse into the future Forest Hill Station.

The station is starting to take shape from the outside and inside. Track installation, the overhead catenary system installation and road restoration work are all expected to start this year.

Forest Hill Station will be an underground station located at the intersection of Bathurst Street and Eglinton Avenue West.

There will be two entrances: the main, fully accessible entrance at the northeast corner of Eglinton and Bathurst Street and the secondary located on the north side of Eglinton, west of Bathurst Street.

Retail spaces will be located at street level accessible from the secondary entrance and there will be 60 outdoor bicycle parking spaces.

It’s looking good from above and below.
