What Work Is Taking Place?

Several construction activities are underway at Eglinton Station:  

Beneath Eglinton Avenue, crews are excavating the remaining soil and pouring concrete slabs at the platform level.  

On Yonge Street north of Eglinton Ave, crews are pouring concrete that will form the base and walls of a new tunnel ventilation shaft for TTC’s Eglinton Station.  

South of Eglinton Ave at Berwick Avenue and Yonge St, crews are nearing completion of concrete works for the Line 1 facility building and will begin structural steel installation in late 2020.  

Inside of TTC’s Eglinton Station crews are constructing an elevator.


What to Expect

Three access shafts located within the work zone on the north side of Eglinton Ave between Yonge St and Dunfield Avenue will be used to deliver steel, formwork and concrete to the station box.  

Deliveries will also be made to the tunnel ventilation shaft site on Yonge St north of Eglinton Ave.  

Deliveries will take place several times per week as early as 6:00 a.m.  Noise from construction equipment, such as cranes, pumps and trucks can be expected.  

Concrete trucks must remain running to allow for continuous turning of the mixer and to discharge concrete.  

Occasional closures of Berwick Ave are required to facilitate construction.  

Periodic chipping of hardened material and concrete will be required.  Manual chipping is expected to take place from the Salvation Army site.
