Ferrovial is awarded the construction of a section of a line of the Toronto Metro (Canada)


Ferrovial’s construction subsidiary, in consortium with Vinci Construction Grands Projet, has been awarded the contract to design, build and finance a section of a Toronto Metro line (Canada), which is Ferrovial’s largest project to date Building.

As reported by the company, this project, awarded by Metrolinx and the Toronto Transportation Authority, will link the Ontario Exhibition Place station, in the center of the city, with the Ontario Science Centre. The expected duration of execution of the work is estimated at seven years.

This initiative, called the Ontario Line South Civil, includes a rapid and autonomous transit system that will have an extension of 6.7 kilometers, for which 6 kilometers of tunnels will be built. Throughout the work, seven stations will be built (six of them underground).

“The Ontario Line South Civil is going to become the largest contract carried out to date by Ferrovial Construction worldwide. Having a project of this size and scope in the portfolio allows us to get an idea of ​​the company’s experience and the value contributes to some of the most complex and visible infrastructure projects in the world”, explained the CEO of Ferrovial Construction, Ignacio Gastón.

The company indicated that, thanks to this new metro line, more than 227,500 people will see their travel times reduced, while the quality of life of passengers will be improved by relieving the crowding that exists on the current Line 1 (Yonge-University ).

Ferrovial has had a presence in Canada for more than 20 years, with projects such as the 407 ETR toll road, located in Toronto, which is the first free-access electronic toll road in the world.
