ECLRT’s Laird Station Features Unique Construction Approach
“Twenty metres below Eglinton Ave., dozens of workers wielding huge machines are building what looks like an underground cathedral. In fact, it’s the future site of Laird Station, one of 25 planned stops on the Eglinton Crosstown LRT.”* (Toronto Star, April 30, 2018)
The unique mining excavation approach to building the ECLRT’s Laird Station was featured in yesterday’s Toronto Star. HH Angus is designing and engineering the mechanical and electrical systems for three of the ECLRT’s underground stations – Laird, Mt. Pleasant and Leaside (Bayview).
The Eglinton Crosstown Light Rail Transit project is the largest transit expansion in Toronto’s history and one of the largest P3 projects in North America.
