The steel skeleton of Metrolinx’s Finch West Station is starting to look more like the future light-rail station it will become as crews move to the next phase of construction.
With all steel and concrete work completed in late 2022, Metrolinx is now transforming the inside of the new station structure. This includes the precision lifts of four escalators, measuring 35 meters (114.8 feet) each. Elsewhere, masonry and utility installation are underway.
The mechanical systems that will enable all station operations are currently under construction, with HVAC, ventilation, electrical and plumbing work happening throughout, including on the station platform.
In 2023, mechanical work will continue and finishing works like the installation of tiling, glass and wayfinding will soon begin. Over 1,000 square meters (3,280 square feet) of glass paneling will be in place upon station completion.
