What Work is Taking Place?

  • To prepare for future construction of the Leaside Station, crews will be conducting Subsurface Utility Engineering investigations along Eglinton Avenue East to determine the location and depth of existing utilities.
  • Crews will drill and use a vacuum truck overtop of existing utilities within the boulevard and roadway, then a surveyor will examine the utilities to obtain coordinates for design purposes.


  • SUE investigation will begin as early as July 25th, 2016, and will take approximately one (1) week to complete.
  • Work is permitted between the hours of 9:00 AM and 4:00 PM.

What to Expect

  • Residents and businesses near the future Leaside Station will see heavy trucks and equipment in the area as crews move from one test hole to the next. 
  • While this work is underway, nearby residents and businesses can expect to hear some noise related to the use of vacuum trucks and heavy equipment.
