What work is starting?

What: Crews will setup a jet grout plant on the north side of the roadway on Eglinton Avenue East between Dunfield Avenue and Redpath Avenue.

Why: Station headwalls create the frame for future underground stations, and are required to be in place prior to the arrival of tunnel boring machines at each of the station locations along the Eglinton Crosstown route. Construction of the headwalls requires a jet grout plant to be established nearby to pump a form of concrete, otherwise known as “grout”, to the station headwall location. A grout plant will be required to support operations to construct the future Mount Pleasant Station headwalls.

When: Starting as soon as the week of July 6, 2015, a grout plant will be set up on the north side of the roadway on Eglinton Avenue East. The grout plant is expected to be in place throughout the headwall construction. Some work may be rescheduled or adjusted due to weather conditions and/or unforeseen circumstances.
