Consortium selected as preferred proponent for largest P3 project in Canada’s history

Infrastructure Ontario and Metrolinx have named Crosslinx Transit Solutions (CTS)— a consortium of equal share partners ACS Infrastructure Canada, Aecon, EllisDon, and SNC-Lavalin— the preferred proponent to design, build, finance, and maintain the Eglinton Crosstown Light Rail Transit (LRT) project using the Alternative Financing and Procurement (AFP) model.

The 19-kilometre project will run east-west on Eglinton Avenue between Mount Dennis (Weston) and Kennedy Station, and the scope of work will include 25 stations and stops that link to bus routes; three subway stations; various GO Transit lines; and a 10.2-kilometre underground portion between Keele Street and Laird Drive. In addition, CTS will deliver a 22,500-square metre maintenance and storage facility at the western end of the LRT line; oversee the procurement and implementation of all systems, including the train control system; and construct third-party infrastructure for a number of local stakeholders, including the City of Toronto.
