In advance of upcoming mining works at Oakwood Station, crews must install sewer linings to the existing sewer infrastructure on Eglinton Avenue West between Oakwood Avenue and Times Road. Work also includes one location on Times Road, just north of Eglinton Avenue. 

Sewer lining is a process intended to increase the durability of the sewers. The liner is a flexible membrane that is placed inside the sewers. Lining is designed to be generally non-disruptive and eliminates the need for excavation of the entire sewer section.

To prepare to install the sewer lining, crews must first clean and measure the sewer sections using a robotic crawler with closed circuit cameras. Equipment required to complete the preparatory work includes a CCTV inspection unit, a safety tripod, a confined space rescue trailer, and lighting.

Lane closures will be implemented around the location of the sewer manholes. A minimum of 1.5m will be maintained for pedestrian walkways. Access to bus stops and businesses will be maintained at all times.
