Infrastructure Ontario and Metrolinx have awarded EllisDon Transit Infrastructure (EDTI) a EUR 158.5 million contract to design, build and finance the Stouffville Corridor stations improvement project, which supports province’s GO Regional Express Rail (RER) programme.
Under the EDTI consortium, EllisDon Civil will perform construction works, the design of the project will be realised by WSP / MMM and EllisDon Capital is the financial advisor. EDTI will commence design in March 2018, with construction beginning in September 2018 and substantial completion expected by December 2020.
The project includes upgrades to tracks, platforms with canopies, new pedestrian connections and amenities at three GO stations (Milliken, Agincourt, and Unionville) along the Stouffville Corridor. The project also includes a road/rail grade separation at Steeles Avenue, with a railway overpass bridge.
“Improving commute times and easing congestion are critical for families and businesses, and a priority for our government. I look forward to the completion of the Stouffville Corridor Stations Improvement project, which directly supports local jobs and a strong economy,” Bob Chiarelli, Minister of Infrastructure said.
