Aecon is the lead partner in the Scarborough Transit Connect (STC) consortium working as the development partner to deliver the project using a Progressive Design-Build (PDB) model. STC is a 50/50 consortium between Aecon and FCC Canada Limited (FCC).
Scope, cost and schedule of various elements of the project are being collaboratively finalized over an 18-month period, with certain early works activities commencing during this phase. Upon successful completion of the development phase, an implementation phase will commence under a target price contract.
The project will extend the TTC’s Line 2 subway service nearly eight kilometres farther from the existing Kennedy Station northeast to McCowan Road and Sheppard Avenue, including three new stations with connections to Line 5 (the Eglinton Crosstown LRT), GO train and bus services, TTC bus service and Durham Region Transit. The extension will replace the existing Line 3, improving the customer experience by offering quick and seamless access to downtown and helping reduce travel times.
