Ontario starts tender process for Toronto light rail

9 Sep 15 Infrastructure Ontario and Metrolinx have issued a request for qualifications for a CA$1.2bn (£590m) project to design, build, finance and maintain the Finch West light rail transit scheme.

The project, which will be integrated with the city's existing transit system, includes 11km of new dedicated rapid transit, 18 surface stops and a below-grade interchange station as well as a maintenance and storage facility for the light rail vehicles.

The project is being delivered using Infrastructure Ontario’s alternative financing and procurement model, which transfers appropriate risks associated with design, construction, financing and maintenance of the project to the private sector. The Finch West LRT will remain publicly owned.

The request for qualifications is the first step in the procurement process to select a team to deliver the project. Submissions will be evaluated to prequalify project teams with the relevant design and construction experience, and the capacity to finance and deliver a project of this size and complexity. Teams who qualify will be invited to respond to a request for proposals.
