Metrolinx contractors continue building the future Eglinton Crosstown light rail transit line between Mount Dennis and Kennedy.

As crews continue working underground, they’ll start water-proofing and final lining of sections of the caverns where they’ve finished mining excavation at the future Laird Station.

The contractors require at least three large (and lengthy) concrete pours as crews continue lining before December 31. The pours require a continuous supply of concrete, which suppliers will deliver to the tunnel level through the main entrance site on the southwest corner of Eglinton Avenue West and Laird Drive. Pours continue from 10 to 14 hours starting at 7 a.m.

To perform each continuous pour, the suppliers must provide 54 truck-loads of concrete, with an average of five trucks arriving, delivering material and then leaving the site each hour. Crews stage trucks three at a time inside the main entrance site. Trucks enter the work zone from the north on Eglinton East and leave to the east on Laird.
