Bombardier Canada light rail transit

Aecom has won a contract worth £55M from Metrolinx to provide technical advisory services on the Hurontario and Hamilton light rail transit projects in Canada.

Aecom’s role in one of Ontario’s largest ever infrastructure projects includes the development of the reference design concept, other design and planning, supporting with procurement processes and supporting construction, including technical compliance oversight. Metrolinx is a government agency and the contract is for seven years.

The Hurontario project in Mississauga and Brampton will consist of 12 miles of light rail installation, 22 stops, a service loop and maintenance storage facility. Capital costs are estimated to be around £770M.

The Hamilton project will include approximately 8 miles of new light rail that will connect McMaster University through downtown Hamilton to Queenston Circle as well as a connection to the West Harbour GO Station. It will cost around £550M.

Aecom chairman and chief executive Michael Burke said: “We are excited to be a part of such important infrastructure projects for Ontario, which will improve mobility for people moving through these corridors and connect them to the region’s existing transit lines. This is a great opportunity to again demonstrate Aecom’s proficiency in delivering complex and essential transportation projects around the world.”
