Eglinton Crosstown West Extension - Elevated Guideway
Toronto, Ontario

Aecon is delivering the elevated guideway for the Eglinton Crosstown West Extension (ECWE) under a design-build contract.

The scope of work includes the design and construction of a 1.5-kilometre elevated guideway that will run along the north side of Eglinton Avenue West, from just east of Jane Street to just west of Scarlett Road. Construction commenced in 2024.

The elevated guideway will form a critical part of the 9.2-kilometre extension of the Eglinton Crosstown LRT. The extension will run from Mount Dennis in the east to Renforth Drive in the west, featuring connections to UP Express and Kitchener GO train services, as well as TTC, GO and MiWay bus services. Aecon is also involved in the construction of the
western underground segment of the route, through the WestEnd Connectors consortium.

The Eglinton Crosstown West Extension will bring even more rapid transit options to Etobicoke and Mississauga, making it easier for people to get where they need to be each day.

Aecon is subcontracting certain early works to Aecon Six Nations (A6N), a successful Indigenous-owned and operated general partnership between Six Nations of the Grand River Development Corporation (51%) and Aecon (49%).
