Eglinton LRT line behind schedule

The contract to dig the Eglinton LRT, which end at Black Creek Drive, has been awarded, but the work is running behind schedule.

The tunnel boring machines will start digging, according to The Star, in February, but they were supposed to start in late 2012. The first machine will start at Black Creek and dig eastward.

The LRT will have a large impact on Weston and Mount Dennis. Apart from connecting us to the downtown with rapid transit, a maintenance and storage facility will be built on the disused Kodak lands. The original plans had called for a station at Jane Street, but that appears to still be in development; Black Creek is the nearest confirmed LRT stop.
