Three shortlisted teams featuring a number of international big hitters have been asked to submit proposals for how they would design and build stations, tracks and systems for Toronto’s Scarborough Subway expansion.

They have until the summer to submit their proposals. In the meantime, Austrian contractor Strabag is preparing its tunnel boring machine (TBM) to begin digging the 7.8km route for the extension north from Kennedy Station at the eastern end of the Bloor-Danforth line (Line 2).

The extension will have three new stations including the extension’s terminus at Sheppard.

Announced yesterday by Metrolinx and Infrastructure Ontario, the three teams are:

• Dragados, led by Dragados Canada, with design by Aecom Canada;

• KSX Integrated Design-Builders, led by Peter Kiewit Sons ULC, with SNC-Lavalin Constructors (Pacific);

• Scarborough Transit Connect, led by Aecon Infrastructure Management, with FCC Construccion and design by Mott MacDonald Canada.

“We are delighted to invite these experienced teams to prepare their proposals to design and build the stations and deliver all the other remaining work for this important project,” said Jenny Matharu, Metrolinx program sponsor for the Scarborough Subway Extension.

“The new extension will put 38,000 more people within a 10-minute walk from the three new subway stations,” said Matharu.
