CANADIAN TRANSPORTATION INFRASTRUCTURE ON THE GO
Just north of Toronto in the suburb of Vaughan, EllisDon also successfully achieved completion on the Rutherford GO Station Project. The scope of the project involved several key infrastructure components in Metrolinx’s Barrie rail corridor including the construction of the new Rutherford GO Station, a 6-story above-grade parking structure, additional rail track and associated works and a road under rail grade separation, with water control measures and pump station. Additional works included landscaping, earthworks and wayfinding, rehabilitation of the existing west platform and a complete new east platform, tunnel extension with elevators and stair access, and pedestrian bridges connecting facilities along with sheltered pedestrian walkways. The project is a key component of the Metrolinx’s GO Expansion program that will steadily increase GO Train service over the next 10 years, leading to a minimum of 15-minute frequency in each direction along core segments of the GO rail network. WT has acted as the Lenders’ Technical Advisor on this project since 2018.
