What is the timeline for the project?

 

The Eglinton Crosstown LRT is a significant project with a long timeline, and works are completed in phases. Construction began in the summer of 2011. The project is expected to be complete in 2021. 

The first pair of tunnel boring machines began tunnelling from Keelesdale Park (at Black Creek Drive and Eglinton Avenue West) in the summer of 2013, working eastwards towards Yonge Street. They reached Yonge Street on May 2016. The second pair of tunnel boring machines began at Brentcliffe Road in fall 2015, working westwards towards Yonge Street. They reached their destination in August 2016. 

In 2015, work began on station construction. By the end of 2016, construction was underway at all 15 of the underground stations.
