Toronto Ontario - Ellis Don Civil is pleased to announce that Ellis Don Transit Infrastructure (EDTI) has achieved financial close and been awarded the contract to design, build, and finance Metrolinx's and Infrastructure Ontario's Regional Express Rail Stouffville Stations expansion project.
"Ellis Don Civil is very excited to be delivering this important RER infrastructure," Said Max Mantha, Vice President and Area Manager for Ellis Don Civil.
"I'm very proud of our team and the hard work of all those involved."
The EDTI team, in collaboration with WSP, brings together expertise in large infrastructure design, construction, and financing.
Team members have extensive experience working on complex, multi-disciplinary, high profile, projects, and have been involved in previous phases of the Regional Express Rail (RER) initiative which aims to transform the GO rail network into a system that will bring rapid, two-way, all-day, GO service to communities across the region over the next decade.
The scope of work on the RER Stouffville Stations project will involve the expansion of the Unionville, Milliken, and Agincourt GO stations in order to accommodate a second track and platform, as well as a grade separation at Steeles Avenue with a rail bridge and pedestrian bridges to the west and east.
Construction is expected to begin in September 2018 and is slated for completion in late 2020.
