The project involves the construction of a 6.5km long, twin-bored tunnel running beneath Eglinton Avenue from Black Creek Station to the Yonge Street Station located in Toronto, Ontario. This project is part of an $8.5B transit expansion program to install a Light Rail Transit system from Black Creek Drive to Scarborough Town Center.
