What Work is Taking Place?

On Wednesday, April 8, 2020, a mobile crane will be delivered to the Chaplin Station Main Entrance site.  The crane will travel north on Chaplin Crescent to Spadina Road, turn onto New Haven Drive and continue south on Gilgorm Road.  The crane will be used to unload equipment from Eglinton Avenue into the site.  Once the equipment has been unloaded, the crane will be removed from the site following the same route. 

To provide adequate space, parking on Gilgorm Road, New Haven Drive and Spadina Road will be prohibited from 7:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday April 8, 2020.  Additionally, Eglinton Avenue will be reduced to one lane only between Chaplin Crescent and Latimer Avenue from 7:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. while equipment is unloaded.
