Spotted: Toronto-York Spadina Subway Extension

TTC construction, as seen from the top of a crane.


SPOTTED BY: Crane operator Glen P.

WHERE: Highway 407 and Jane Street

WHEN: Monday, February 4

WHAT: The last time we checked in on the TTC’s subway extension north to Vaughan was in December, when Torkie and Yorkie—those are two of the tunnel-boring machines at work on the project—broke through a wall (on purpose!), looking very impressive in their concrete-busting capacities. Now, courtesy of a crane operator who works near the construction, here are some neat aerial photos of the station being built at Jane and the 407. (He first sent the photos to TTC Chair Karen Stintz; her office then agreed to share them with us.) You can see the boring machines in the first shot, up above, and Black Creek curving around the site of the new station in the top left.
