ACS to implement a light rail line in Toronto, Canada

The Government of the Province of Ontario anticipates an investment of 775 million euros in the project that will be carried out by a consortium integrated by ACS Group, which participates in a 33% in construction works and 50% in maintenance works, and by local companies Aecon and Dufferin/CRH Group Canada Inc.

The project involves a new 11-kilometre line that will run through Finch Avenue, one of the main and most congested arteries of the City of Toronto. Along its route, the line will have 16 surface stops, an underground stop at Humber University, and an underground station-transport hub with connection to the new Finch West metro station, part of the new extension of the Toronto-York-Spadina line.

The contract also includes the construction of the workshops and sheds, the supply and integration of all systems (including signalling and control of vehicles), and the construction of complementary infrastructure for Ontario’s Ministry of Transports and Toronto’s City Hall.

ACS Group will also be responsible for the integration and maintenance of the new vehicle fleet, which will be supplied by Alstom through a direct contract with the Province of Ontario. Construction will begin in the third quarter of 2018, with the line expected to be operational in the second half of 2023.
