Eglinton Crosstown West Extension LIVE - June 8, 2021

On June 8 2021, Metrolinx hosted a virtual open house including speakers from the Eglinton Crosstown West Extension project team and Metrolinx design team. During the hour and a half open house, the team presented information on the project, and specifically the elevated guideway. We answered as many questions as possible during the event.

In case you missed the event, you’ll find the answers in the video recording below. We also received additional questions during the virtual session and are committed to answering those as well. Answers will be posted at the bottom of this page.
