Elevated Guideway

The Eglinton Crosstown West Extension will operate underground from Renforth Drive to just west of Scarlett Road, where it will then transition to a 1.5-kilometre elevated guideway that will run east of Jane Street before heading underground again and connecting to the future Mount Dennis Station. The stations at Scarlett Road and Jane Street will also be elevated.

The elevated guideway will run along the north side of Eglinton Avenue West, as close as possible to the road. Access to Fergy Brown, Eglinton Flats and Pearen parks will be maintained throughout construction.
