What Work is Taking Place?

In late 2016, a portion of the western frontage of Eglinton Park was fenced off to accommodate construction staging. Through consultations with the public and local elected officials, a reduced portion of the Eglinton Park was approved for temporary use during the construction of the Eglinton Crosstown.  

As previously presented and advised in 2016, tree removals are required in the designated portion of Eglinton Park. Fencing has been erected around the designated lands in the park as well as tree protection around the appropriate designated trees. Tree protection has been approved by the required parties and the permit has been received. Tree removals will take place between March 13th and March 31st, 2017. 

Please take care when travelling near construction.

Avenue Tree Removal

Timing

Tree removals will occur between March 13th and March 31st, 2017. 

What to Expect

Trees 
Twenty-six (26) trees at the front of the park will be removed.  Other trees in the area are surrounded with protective fencing. These recommendations comply with current City requirements for compensation and restoration. 
Use of the Park 
Avenue Station construction staging in this area will include the following uses:
  • Project materials storage
  • Soil stockpile/holding area
  • Equipment 
  • Truck waiting area
  • Site crew trailers
Restoration of the Park 
Restoration of the park will take place once Avenue Station and the Eglinton Crosstown construction are complete. Working with communities and elected officials, a restoration plan will be developed for Eglinton Park to enhance landscaping and improve lighting and grade, in coordination with the City and existing improvement plans. 

Thank you for your patience as we work to build this important project.

Please support your local businesses during construction.
