The Eglinton Crosstown West Extension (ECWE) is a 9.2-kilometre extension of the Eglinton Crosstown LRT (future TTC Line 5). The extension will run mostly underground, westward from the future Mount Dennis station to Renforth Drive.

It’s one of the priority transit projects announced in 2019 along with the Scarborough Subway Extension, the Ontario Line and the Yonge North Subway Extension.
