Wild and crazy Bayview and Eglinton at new heights

Work has begun in earnest on the main station for the Leaside stop of the Crosstown LRT at Eglinton Ave. and Bayview Ave. The video on the left is the action at a trench digging across Eglinton near Mann Ave which reduced traffic on Tuesday to one lane on the north side of the street. On the right, the chaotic scene down at Bayview and Eg where pedestrians were asking sewer workers if it was safe to cross the street. “Sure lady, go ahead”. Wild and crazy, you bet. There is more to come here because this stop will require excavation out into Eglinton and a covering of planks for a while.
