TORONTO - Infrastructure Ontario (IO) and Metrolinx have awarded a fixed-price contract of $239 million to EllisDon Infrastructure Transit (EDIT) to design, build and finance the Rutherford Station project, in support of the province's GO Rail Expansion program. 

Members of the EDIT team include: 

  • Applicant Lead: EllisDon Civil Ltd.
  • Construction: EllisDon Civil Ltd.
  • Design: Amec Foster Wheeler plc.
  • Financial Advisor: EllisDon Capital Inc. 

EDIT was selected as the successful proponent as the result of an open, fair and competitive procurement process overseen by a third-party fairness monitor.

The project includes a new multi-level parking structure with an integrated station building, in addition to a re-design of the surface parking, kiss and ride, and bus loop. The project also brings improved pedestrian access, new rail platforms, and a second heavy rail track and provision for future third express center track, as well as a rail/road grade separation on Rutherford Road. 

EDIT will commence their design work now, with construction beginning in spring 2019 and completion expected in 2023.
