We may not have video postcards of waves lapping at Mexican beaches.

And we can’t offer virtual escapes to Venice.

But you seem to be enjoying recent video updates showing progress made on the Eglinton Crosstown light rail transit (LRT) project. So here’s a new one – specifically, the section from Avenue Station to Leaside Station.

And speaking of Crosstown progress, here’s a bonus image that’s come up from below. It represents an excavation milestone for both Chaplin and Forest Hill stations, as both parts broke through the tunnel recently as they continue moving downward towards platform level.

the breakthrough points at Forest Hill and Chaplin.

We thought you’d, well, dig it.
