New Eglinton Crosstown LRT progress photos are raising the roof

Metrolinx News brings you regular updates on project milestones along the Eglinton Crosstown light rail transit (LRT) route. Whether it’s above ground or in the tunnels, construction continues on Toronto’s newest rapid transit line. This week’s update will have you looking up as crews top things off.

Some important finishing touches are being added at Crosstown LRT stations across Eglinton Avenue.

Starting off on the east side of the 19-kilometre Crosstown route, progress continues at Kennedy Station.

Kennedy is the eastern end of the Eglinton Crosstown LRT line and once completed, will be an important hub for the east end of Toronto. The station will include connections to the Stouffville GO line as well as TTC bus and subway service.

A little bit down the line, Science Centre Station is growing.

When it’s done, Science Centre Station will be an underground station located at the intersection of Don Mills Road and Eglinton Avenue East. The station will also include an off-street TTC Bus Terminal.
