EllisDon picked for rail corridor upgrades

EllisDon Transit Infrastructure (EDTI) has won a CA$254.5m contract for rail corridor upgrades in Ontario.

Infrastructure Ontario and Metrolinx awarded the fixed-price contract, which involves the design, construction and financing of the Stouffville Corridor Stations Improvement project, in support of the province's GO Regional Express Rail (RER) program.

Members of the EDTI team include:

  • Lead: EllisDon Capital;
  • Construction: EllisDon Civil;
  • Design: WSP / MMM;
  • Financial advisor: EllisDon Capital

The project includes upgrades to tracks, platforms with canopies, new pedestrian connections and amenities at the Milliken, Agincourt, and Unionville GO stations along the Stouffville Corridor. The project also includes a road/rail grade separation at Steeles Avenue, with a railway overpass bridge.

Work on the Stouffville GO corridor is part of a larger, system-wide plan to improve the overall GO Transit service, including the delivery of GO RER, which will provide faster and more frequent service across the network.

EDTI will begin design this mon and start construction in September 2018, with substantial completion expected by December 2020.
