Construction began in 2011, but the digging for the Eglinton Crosstown Light Rail Transit line’s complete.
The boring machines reached Yonge Street Wednesday after having travelled 3,300 metres from where they started just east of Brentcliffe Road in September 2015.
The machines completed tunnelling on the western segment back in May of this year.
Construction shoring’s underway on three stations, including Keelesdale, Lair and Avenue with preparatory demolition work underway, near completion or completed at Chaplin, Fairbank, Forest Hill, Mount Pleasant, Mount Dennis, Laird, Keelesdale, Avenue, Oakwood, Science Centre, Eglinton and Leaside.
The Eglinton Crosstown LRT will have 25 stations and stops along Eglinton between Weston Road and Kennedy Station and will link to 54 bus routes, three subway stations and GO Transit.
The light rail transit line will be in service by September 2021.
