Stantec team wins Metrolinx expansion project

Stantec and its partner Amec Foster Wheeler have been appointed as technical advisor for the Bowmanville rail expansion in Ontario.

The commuter rail expansion project will provide infrastructure improvements to accommodate a 20km extension of Metrolinx’s GO Transit service along their Lakeshore East rail corridor, from Oshawa to Bowmanville.

“The Bowmanville rail expansion represents an exciting investment in Durham Region – one that will greatly enhance its transportation infrastructure,” says Gregg Cooke, Stantec vice president for transportation. “Our team is excited to help create more transit options for people in communities throughout Durham. Ultimately, this project will help drive economic growth and job creation, while also reducing traffic congestion.”

Stantec and Amec Foster Wheeler will provide technical services related to the addition of two GO Transit tracks, a new layover facility, four new stations, 19 grade separations/bridge expansions (including a grade separation over Highway 401), several culvert and at-grade crossing modifications, and the associated utility works to accommodate the new infrastructure.

Metrolinx has defined an aggressive schedule, targeting completion of construction services by the end of 2023.

“This project impacts several municipal districts, Durham Region, the Ministry of Transportation of Ontario, and CP Rail,” said Richard Lanyi, Stantec’s senior project manager and rail sector lead. “Stakeholder engagement and consultation has been a high priority for Metrolinx, and will continue to be a high priority with the added Stantec/Amec Foster Wheeler team on this project. Engagement will be key to the timely delivery of the project, and will continue through all aspects of the work, from preliminary designs, through to construction completion.”
