Toronto from up high - Finch West LRT shown in new drone images
We continue to show progress on the Finch West light rail transit route and the local communities.
Dec 11, 2020
Northwest Toronto never seemed so high up.
We have a new crop of recent construction photos from the Finch West Light Rail Transit (LRT) project, and the views are fairly spectacular – and informative. The images show ground-level toiling on key work that will support the 18 stops across 11 km. of rail.
From these pictures, we can see piling work for the portal of the future stop at Humber College has started. On the parking lot, storm sewer construction continues.
And at Finch Ave. W., looking east from Hwy. 400., you can see the large Maintenance and Storage Facility (MSF) on the left side of the picture and how traffic configuration changes at Norfinch. You can also see the construction area for the wet utility around York Gate Blvd.
(MSF) And going down lower, more work is being done on the tracks at the MSF.
Some interesting new angles on progress on the LRT route, that’s expected to open in 2023.
