Eglinton Crosstown West Extension LIVE - November 3, 2021

On November 3, Metrolinx hosted a virtual house with our constructors, the West End Connectors (WEC). WEC provided an update on the tunneling contract and specifically about work happening at the pedestrian bridge just west of Scarlett Road. Representatives from Metrolinx and WEC provided a short presentation to discuss upcoming construction and answered questions from the public.

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.

I support an elevated guideway & is preferred over at-grade tracks or expensive unnecessary tunneling. Ppl are unaware how many metro/LRT/subway systems in big cities are elevated or above ground, including NYC, Chicago, Mexico City & London. When/where can we access landscape plans showing the planting of new trees & landscaping along the route?

Eglington Flatts area is full of greenspace and treed areas, how will this be considered and approached in the design?

Wondering why the above ground elevated portion from Jane to Scarlett is so high vs the existing roadway. Can the rail elevation match the roadway so it doesn't stick out vs natural landscape and trees?
