Crosstown LRT reaches milestone, Science Centre Station entrance
The Eglinton Crosstown project is seeing progress - lately, teams have been finishing concrete work.
Apr 21, 2021
Crews on Eglinton Crosstown’s light rail transit (LRT) project are pouring it on.
The teams from Crosslinx Transit Solutions – Metrolinx’s builders on the new Toronto route – have finished up several sections of concrete.
Recent images include one from Eglinton Station, where those experts have completed a concrete pour at the station inverts, marking the completion of all invert pours across the project. An ‘invert pour’ is a pour of the base level slab – not to be confused with the ‘mudslab’, which is the slab below the invert that actually sits on the ground.
And at Mount Pleasant Station, crews have completed a concrete pour at the lower concourse level. The area will one day see plenty of passenger traffic.
Meanwhile, at Science Centre Station, workers have completed installation of the louvers at the main entrance. The features will be a well-known and a distinctive part of the transit destination’s look.
All in all, you have to, um, louver what’s been accomplished lately along the light rail transit line.
