Eglinton Crosstown West Extension
- Eglinton Crosstown West Extension
The Eglinton Crosstown West Extension will bring even more rapid transit to Etobicoke and Mississauga, making it easier for people to get where they need to be each day.
The extension of the Eglinton Crosstown LRT will run 9.2 kilometres from the future Mount Dennis LRT station to Renforth Drive and will operate mainly underground. Once complete, it will create a continuous rapid transit line that stretches from Scarborough, through midtown Toronto, and into Mississauga.
The extension will connect with other local and regional transit options that will make it faster and easier to get around, including UP Express and GO Transit rail services, TTC bus services, and MiWay and GO Transit bus services along the 18-km Mississauga Transitway.
Plans are also being explored with the Greater Toronto Airports Authority to extend the line to Pearson International Airport.
Construction on the project is now underway.
