When complete, the line will connect Mount Dennis in the west to

Kennedy Road in the east, and will move passengers up to 60 per cent faster than bus service along Eglinton Avenue today. Read more »

Tunnelling for the Crosstown: What you may experience

As you know, tunnelling continues on the Eglinton Crosstown Light Rail Transit (LRT) project as we build the underground portion of the future transit line.

Our TBMs are working about 20 metres below ground, but we do sometimes hear from nearby residents who may experience vibration from the TBMs as they pass through the area.    Read more »
