Metrolinx has awarded a $177-million tunneling contract for the construction of a section of the Eglinton Crosstown Light Rail Transit (LRT) project in Toronto to a joint venture between Aecon/ACS Dragados Canada Inc.

The project involves building two parallel 6.5-m diameter tunnels over a distance of 3.25 km and construction of two emergency exit buildings.

Aecon, who is currently working on two other transit lines in Toronto – The Toronto-York Spadina Subway Extension and the UP Express elevated spur line connecting the Georgetown GO Transit line to the Toronto Pearson International Airport – is the lead of the joint venture.

The Eglinton Crosstown LRT project is scheduled for completion in the second quarter of 2016.
