The Crosstown project hit an exciting milestone on Jan 21. The West Tunnel TBMs broke through into the extraction shaft at Allen Road. That means the tunneling from Black Creek to Allen Road is complete.
Considerable progress has been made, and there is a lot of work that still needs to be done. As we bid farewell to 2014 and welcome in 2015, we would like to reflect on the past year and look ahead to how we expect the project to advance over the next 12 months.
We have been tunnelling since June 2013, so we are surprised when we are often asked whether the LRT is underground. LRTs can run underground or on the surface, and along the Eglinton Crosstown, we are doing both. Ten kilometres (between Keele and Laird) will be underground; the rest surface.
