Airport Station is a new station at the Macdonald-Cartier International Airport and will represent the terminus of the Airport Link. It will be a new elevated station located adjacent to the airport departure roadway and the airport passenger terminal building. The entrance and lounge will be an extension of the airport terminal building and the station platform will be at the same elevation as the third level of the airport passenger terminal building.
The design of the station will be closely coordinated with the Airport Authority throughout design development as they will extend the existing airport passenger terminal structure to the station. The station, platform, guideway and guideway structures will be constructed to allow the Airport Authority to construct the airport passenger terminal expansion, including the entrance and lounge directly, together.
Work continues at Airport Station, with customer facing elements and finishes being installed. Wayfinding, ticket vending machines and most of the platform access is complete.
Now that the tarps are down, a lot of progress can be seen at Airport Station as trims and finishes are starting to appear.
Airport Spur, the guideway and partially protected connection between the Terminal and platform/shelter. Only single Alstom Coradia LINT trainsets fit here and a pair will shuttle to South Keys transfer, meeting at EY Centre (Uplands) Station.
The overhead pedestrian walkway frame linking the airport terminal and the airport O-Train station is now in place.
The Airport Station guideway, station itself and connection to the airport terminal continue to advance at a good pace.
The Airport Stations elevated guideway and station platform are in place. Already, the station structure itself is being assembled and constructed.
Airport Station and the alignment is progressing! All elevated segments are in place! Last beam was installed yesterday (one connecting to the landing) in the evening. Still a lot of work but at least the structure is there.
