The Eglinton Crosstown West Extension is an approximately 9.2 kilometre extension of the Eglinton Crosstown LRT (future Line 5), from Mount Dennis to Renforth Drive. Metrolinx is actively collaborating with the GTAA and municipal partners on the proposed alignment from Renforth Drive to the airport, which takes into account the GTAA’s plans for a Regional Transit Centre. Tunnelling is one of the first phases of work for the project. A separate advance tunneling contract will be issued to help move the project forward on an accelerated timeline.

The project is being delivered in two separate P3 contracts, although the type of P3 has yet to be determined:

• Advance Tunnelling contract awarded to West End Connectors in May 2021

• Stations and remaining works (procurement dates TBD)
