About the Project
The Eglinton-Scarborough Crosstown is a transit project that will provide rapid and reliable service across Eglinton Avenue including an underground central section from Keele Street to Don Mills Road and will be up to 60% faster than bus service today.
What work is starting?
The Crosstown construction has begun at Keelesdale Park between Keele Street and Black Creek Drive. The tunneling machines will begin work in the new year and will work their way east from Keelesdale Park to the west commuter lot at Allen Road. The machines will be removed and placed back into the ground in the east commuter lot. This is required to maintain subway service during construction. Work will now begin for the preparation of the extraction and launch shafts for the tunnel boring machines at the commuter lots adjacent to Eglinton West station.
