TORONTO — The contract for the Stouffville Corridor Stations Improvements project is slated to be awarded in early 2018, after the request for proposals stage closed recently.
Three teams, EllisDon Transit Infrastructure, Kenaidan Obayashi Transit Partners and Kiewit-Bird Joint Venture, were prequalified and invited to respond to a request for proposals that was issued in September 2016, states a release by the Ministry of Transportation.
The teams submitted their proposals for the improvements to the three GO stations, including new pedestrian connections, track upgrades and platform canopies. The project also includes a new grade-separated crossing and railway overpass bridge at Steeles Avenue.
The project is being delivered using a design-build-finance model.
The Stouffville Corridor Stations Improvements project is part of Ontario's $21.3 billion transformation of the GO Transit network from a commuter transit system to a regional rapid transit system.
GO Regional Express Rail will provide faster and more frequent GO rail service across the region, with electrification of core segments of the network, including the Union Pearson Express, adds the release.
