Toronto-York Spadina

25 November 2009

The main construction contracts for the Toronto-York Spadina Subway Extension are scheduled to be tendered/awarded between October 2010 and January 2011. The Toronto Transit Commission is to hold an information session to update potential contractors on details of the construction packages and the pre-qualification and tender processes, and will also chair a question and answer session following the presentation.

Contractors interested in pre-qualifying and bidding work either as a general contractor or sub-contractor on this project are encouraged to attend the Friday December 4th meeting, with pre-qualification documents welcomed in early 2010.

The 8.6 km long Spadina Subway line extension will include 6.7km twin bored tunnels at 5.4m internal diameter, created by four EPB/TBM machines, which will be TTC procured and Lovat manufactured. The tunnels will be lined with concrete pre-cast segmental liners procured by TTC.

The finished extension will run from Downsview, City of Toronto to the Vaughan Corporate Centre, City of Vaughan. It will feature six new cut-and cover stations, associated crossover, storage, yard connection and tail track running structures. The project has a cost of CA$2.6 billion (US$2.4 billion)

Patrons interested in attending are asked to contact Lizza Ocampo, Contracts Clerk, to confirm your attendance at 416-397-8065 by Monday, November 30, 2009. The presentation takes place at Ontario Institute For Studies In Education (OISE), Universtiy of Toronto, 252 Bloor St West, Room G162, Toronto from 10am-12pm.
