Watch live: Drilling begins for Eglinton Crosstown LRT

Global News

TORONTO – Drilling has officially begun on the Eglinton Crosstown LRT line.

Minister of Transportation Glen Murray was on hand for the occasion, accompanied by Laura Albanese, MPP for York South-Weston, and Bruce McCuaig, president and CEO of Metrolinx.

For the first time in decades, two underground transit lines will be under construction at the same time in Toronto.

With the Spadina line extension still pushing north into York Region, four tunnel boring machines will launch today to dig the Eglinton-Crosstown line.

The underground section will run for 11 kilometres from near Jane Street and will then run at surface level east to Kennedy Station.

Target completion for the project is around 2020.
