Demolition work for laird station


Laird is an LRT station under construction on the Toronto Transit Commission's Eglinton Crosstown line. It will be located in the Leaside neighbourhood at the intersection of Laird Drive and Eglinton Avenue. It is scheduled to open in 2020.

Contents

When opened this station might serve as a temporary eastern terminus of the line if the eastern portion of this line is not yet complete.

This station's entrances are both on the south side of Eglinton. The main entrance is at the southwest corner of the Laird Drive intersection replacing a small strip mall and the secondary one is east of that in the Leaside Centre parking lot, just beyond the Pier 1 Imports store. This is the last underground station eastbound in the main tunnel; the line will emerge in the Eglinton median about 250m east of Brentcliffe Drive.

Destinations include the many commercial establishments to the southeast: Leaside Centre, the SmartCentres on Laird, and the Leaside Business Park on Eglinton.

In a report to the TTC Board on 23 November 2015 it was recommended that stations on Line 5 Eglinton LRT should be given unique names.

Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne officiated at the ground-breaking for the station on June 30, 2016.
