Aecom has been awarded a contract by the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) to serve as owner’s engineer for the expansion of the city’s busiest subway station, Bloor-Yonge.
Built in 1953, Bloor-Yonge Station is on track for higher ridership demand owing to population growth in Toronto and planned transit expansions.
The project will see a new Line 2 passenger platform built and both Line 1 platforms expanded, among other improvements.
Aecom will provide services related to detailed design, procurement, construction, commissioning, handover, and close-out.
It will also advise on the project delivery model, lean delivery principles, and BIM.
“Bloor-Yonge Station is a critical interchange – the busiest in Toronto’s subway system and one of the busiest in North America – and we’re thrilled to help deliver these important improvements for the community,” said Marc Devlin, chief executive of Aecom’s Canada region.
He noted that Aecom has advised the TTC since 1979.
