TORONTO: Here are the new stations in the Eglinton Crosstown LRT – blogTO

This is what all the new stations will look like when the Eglinton Crosstown is built

The Eglinton Crosstown LRT is still a long way from completion, but when it’s done, the city will have a new integrated light rail transit system that stretches 19 kilometres across the city from east to west. 

The $5.3 billion project, which began construction in 2011, will bring 25 new stations and stops along Eglinton Avenue between Mount Dennis through to Scarborough in Toronto.

A number of the stations have been renamed since their initial announcement, and designs are subject to change in the future. But, as of right now, here’s what all the new stations will look like when the Eglinton Crosstown LRT is built.

    Tax payers will be using it and with parking being very expensive in the city I will say yes it’s money well spent. The GTA has a great transit system, from East to West and North to South. This corridor of transit opens up an easier and more affordable way to get around.

    kamtanblog: To answer your question – well, I cannot say about Toronto – But, where I live we have a bylaw stating that the city must have a balanced budget.

    That means the credit rating of the city is very good.

    Therefore, our city administrators use the excellent credit rating to issue debentures. In other words, the city has a balanced budget but the money from the bonds pay for the project.

    That’s all I know – ask your accountant.
