A total of 1,165,000 cubic metres of soil was removed by the tunnel boring machines.
Cedarvale (formerly Eglinton West) Station
The Cedarvale Crosstown station will be underground, serving as an interchange station that connects to the TTC University subway line.
In the first phase of tunnelling, two tunnel boring machines start digging at Black Creek Drive and move their way eastward. When they reach Eglinton West station, they will be extracted using a shaft located just west of Allen Road. This will allow existing subway service to be maintained throughout construction. The tunnel boring machines will be refurbished and reinstalled just east of Allen Road, for the second phase of tunnelling to Yonge Street.
As an interchange station, Eglinton West will be one of the busiest. There will be two entrances at Eglinton West: one on the east side and one on the west.
There will be secure indoor bike parking at this station.
