Just below the intersection of Toronto’s Dufferin Street and Eglinton Avenue West, crews are digging in.
To end your week, we thought we’d share an interesting recent Crosstown light rail transit (LRT) route image from Fairbank station that shows the ‘top-down’ method of construction. The roof under the roadway is completed first, with excavation under the roadway now ongoing.
The picture is a bit otherworldly, but the method is very down to earth.
Fairbank station is the fourth stop heading east on the Eglinton Crosstown. The station will include two entrances, on-street connections to TTC buses, retail space within the station and 30 outdoor bicycle parking spaces.

We’re updating information screens across the GO & UP network to make taking transit even easier.
Newly released video highlights the recent transit building progress made across the region.
