Aecom wins contract for Toronto’s Bloor-Yonge station

Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) awarded Aecom an engineering contract for the Bloor-Yonge Capacity Improvements (BYCI) project. The station is in downtown Toronto providing connection between the Line 1 Yonge–University and Line 2 Bloor–Danforth.

Aecom will provide consulting services, including the utilisation of lean project delivery and building information modeling, through all phases of the project, including detailed design, procurement, construction, commissioning, handover, and close-out.

The project aims to expand and modernise the transit hub to accommodate current and future ridership, improve accessibility and safety features, and enhance the customer experience.

“Bloor-Yonge station is a critical interchange as is the busiest in Toronto’s metro system and one of the busiest in North America, and we’re thrilled to help deliver these important improvements for the community,” Marc Devlin, chief executive of Aecom Canada said.

Initially constructed in 1953, Bloor-Yonge station is expected to experience significant ridership demand due to population growth in the Toronto area and the implementation of planned transit expansion initiatives.

The BYCI project seeks to improve service levels for TTC customers by constructing a new Line 2 passenger platform, expanding both Line 1 passenger platforms, improving accessibility and safety, and enhancing the concourse level, entrances, and exits.
