Strabag team to build £67M Canadian rail tunnel

Strabag has announced that its Canadian subsidiary is part of a project team that has been awarded a contract to build a 180m long rail tunnel below Highway 401 in Toronto.

The £67M design, build and finance project will be delivered with Ellis Don Capital under the name of Toronto Tunnel Partners (TTP) for Ontario’s public transport agency Metrolinx.

The new tunnel is part of plans first announced in 2014 by the Province of Ontario to transform its regional express rail network. This tunnel contract is a key element of increasing capacity on the Kitchener Corridor and will create a second tunnel under Highway 401 to add two additional tracks on the route.

Design work for TTP will be delivered by WSP, Dr Sauer and Partners and Amec Foster Wheeler.

“The 401 Rail Tunnel Project, which will also support potential high speed rail service between Toronto and Windsor, is another step forward in building the transportation system Ontario needs to continue to grow and prosper,” said Ontario minister of transportation Steven Del Duca.

The construction work is expected to be completed in summer 2021.
