UrbanToronto has some construction shots, taken March 26th, of work underway to extend the Spadina Subway line north from its current terminus at Sheppard Avenue West in North York as far as Highway 7 in Vaughan. It is still early days with this project, so there is little drama so far, but the images will give you an idea of how things are progressing.

First, a couple of shots at the site of Downsview Park station. Any excavation is difficult to see from the road, but LovatTunnel Boring Machine (TBM) parts are on display for all to see.

Three stations north, at Steeles West, there are more TBM parts lying on a now closed York University parking lot.

A deep shaft is under construction where the future station will be located. Two TBMs will be lowered piece by piece into the ground here to start the tunnelling process.
