RFQ for SRS contract on Eglinton Crosstown West extension

Eglinton Crosstown West extension  Infrastructure Ontario (IO) and Metrolinx have issued a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) for the Stations, Rail and Systems (SRS) contract for the Eglinton Crosstown West Extension (ECWE). This package of work will be procured through a progressive design-build contract model. The scope of work includes the construction of seven new stations, installation, testing, and commissioning of all rail and track components and systems equipment; road modifications and utility works; and coordination with project companies on handover items from the advance tunnelling and elevated guideway contracts.

The RFQ is the first step in the procurement process to select a team to deliver the ECWE SRS package. IO and Metrolinx will evaluate submissions to prequalify teams with the relevant experience and financial capacity to deliver a project of this size and complexity.

The 9.2-km Eglinton Crosstown West Extension is being delivered in four separate procurement contracts. The contracts include: the first advance tunnelling contract, which covers the underground segment of the line between Renforth Drive and Scarlett Road; the second advance tunnelling contract, which covers the underground segment of the line between Jane Street and Mount Dennis station; the contract for the elevated guideway (managed by Metrolinx), which covers the above-ground section of the route between Scarlett Road and Jane Street; and, the Stations, Rail, and Systems contract.

Once complete, the ECWE will connect to different transit services, including the GO Kitchener Line and UP Express train service at Mount Dennis, TTC bus services at transit stops in Toronto, and GO and MiWay bus services via the Mississauga Transitway. Metrolinx is actively collaborating with the GTAA and municipal partners on the proposed alignment from Renforth Drive to the airport, which takes into account the GTAA’s plans for a Regional Transit Centre.

The Eglinton Crosstown West Extension is one of four priority transit projects announced by the Province in 2019 for the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area.
