Pre-qualified teams sent RFPs for GO expansion

TORONTO — A Request for Proposals will be sent to four pre-qualified teams who will be bidding to design, build, finance, operate and maintain the infrastructure for the largest capital project in the GO Expansion program, the On-Corridor Works project.

A May 31 release indicates four teams have been pre-qualified to bid on the project: EnTransit, MTR Kiewit Partners, ONcore Transit, and ONxpress Transportation Partners.

The project is expected to improve and expand GO train service into a two-way, all-day rapid transit service every 15 minutes on core segments of the GO Rail network.

The scope of work for the project includes operation of train services including train driving; timetable planning, train control and dispatch for all operators across the GO-owned network; design, build, finance, integration, maintenance of the railway cMetrolinx

orridor (civil infrastructure, tracks, electrification, signaling); refurbishment, maintenance, servicing and cleaning of all rolling stock and procurement of new rolling stock; construction of new maintenance and train storage and/or layover facilities; reconstruction of Union Station track and platforms; and compliance with Metrolinx safety, security and emergency management policies.

“The GO Rail Expansion program will make travelling across the GTHA a faster, easier and a more seamless experience for commuters,” said Ontario’s Infrastructure Minister Monte McNaughton, in a statement.

“Partnering with the private sector to deliver this program will minimize construction delays and financial risks to taxpayers.”
