Eglinton-Scarborough Crosstown LRT News

There are two upcoming meetings regarding the Metrolinx LRT and it appears that there are to be major changes in the plans from the previously plans with respect to the Brentcliffe to Leslie section.

East Tunnel Alignment deals with the alignment of the Eglinton LRT between Don Mills and Leslie. They are now planning to bury the LRT under the West Don River. It is unclear if there will be a station at Leslie. This means it will not come to the surface at Brentcliffe, but west of Don Mills Road.

Environmental Assessment Update: Change to East Tunnel Alignment

Metrolinx invites you to attend a public information meeting to get a project update, learn more and share your input on a change of the east tunnel portal location from east of Laird Station (near Brentcliffe Road) to just east of Don Mills Station.  This change will allow uninterrupted tunnelling from Don Mills to Yonge Station with significant improvements to construction staging, schedule and impacts.

Time: 7:00 p.m.
Location: Ontario Science Centre, Telus Conference Room
