UPDATE: New Mining Activities at Laird Station



As work progresses underground, final lining works will begin on sections of the caverns where mining excavation is complete.

  • Waterproofing and final lining will occur inside of the complete caverns.
  • Large concrete pours will be required periodically throughout final lining construction works.
  • Concrete pours require continuous supply of concrete and at this time concrete will be delivery to tunnel level via the Main Entrance site.


  • Between late November and the end of 2018 there will be at least three (3) concrete pours.
  • Continuous pours will last between 10 – 14 hours and will begin at 7:00 a.m.
  • Mining works occur on a 24 hour schedule.


  • Approximately 54 concrete trucks will be required per pour, an average of 5 trucks per hour.
  • Three trucks will be staged at a time inside of the Main Entrance site.
  • Trucks will enter the north side of the construction site from Eglinton Avenue East and leave from the east side of the site on to Laird Drive.
