For the past three months we have been documenting the building of the new TTC/GO Station at Downsview Park. The extension of the Spadina line will run from the current Downsview station to the new Sheppard West station and further to the new Finch West station. This section of the construction is proposed to last until 2014 so this will be an ongoing project for us. We have taken on a wide variety of work in our time and this is just another example of what we can do. It has been interesting to see that opportunities for creating some form of art exist even in something as mechanical and – messy – as major construction.
Above you can see workers in the early stages of assembling the tunnel boring machine that will be used to create the tunnels for the new expansion.
