The multi-billion dollar Eglinton Crosstown light-rail transit line in Toronto is one step closer to completion.
The province announced on Wednesday the underground tunneling for the eastern portion of the rail line from Brentcliffe Road to Yonge Street is finished.
The $5.3 billion Crosstown, which is expected to be operational in the fall of 2021, will consist of 25 stations and stops, linking to bus routes, three subway stations and GO Transit lines.
The Metrolinx project includes a 19-kilometre transit corridor, including a 10-kilometre underground portion.
The province says the Crosstown is expected to carry approximately 5,500 passengers per hour during peak travel times by 2031.
