About the Project:

The Eglinton Crosstown West Extension is an approximately 9.2 kilometre extension of the Eglinton Crosstown LRT (future Line 5), from Mount Dennis to Renforth Drive. Metrolinx is actively collaborating with the GTAA and municipal partners on the proposed alignment from Renforth Drive to the airport, which takes into account the GTAA's plans for a Regional Transit Centre. Tunnelling is one of the first phases of work for the project. A separate advance tunneling contract will be issued to help move the project forward on an accelerated timeline.

The Eglinton Crosstown West Extension is one of four priority transit projects announced by the Province in 2019 for the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area. Planning is underway for all four subway projects and procurements for the subway program are being staged to ensure each project is delivered successfully.
