    Near where the boundaries of North York, York, and
    It would be quite a short walk from Forest Hill CI. The secondary entrance may also have a direct connection to the Belt Line.

    This part of the Eglinton line is very much like a subway I'd say

    So I am guessing they are going to tunnel underneath the Beltline instead of having to build an access bridge underneath the existing bridge carrying Eglinton????

    I would hope so! I don't think a level crossing on the Belt Line would be feasible.

    The dataBase file for Chaplin station has been updated with more, more up-to-date, and larger renderings. Threads for the Crosstown LRT stations are being moved to the Buildings section of UrbanToronto. The thread for the whole line is here in the Transport section.
