By Jillian Morgan   


Infrastructure Ontario and Metrolinx have awarded a $73 million contract to EllisDon Infrastructure Transit (EDIT) to design, build and finance a bus terminal project.

The Kipling Bus Terminal, located along the Milton Corridor in the City of Toronto, requires upgrades to accommodate the province’s planned $2.31 billion expansion to the GO Transit Rail network.

Members of the EDIT team include:

  • EllisDon Capital, developer
  • EllisDon Design-Build, constructor
  • Strasman Architects, NAK Design Strategies and WSP Canada, designer
  • EllisDon Capital, financial advisor

The scope of work for the Kipling Bus Terminal project includes:

  • An elevated pedestrian bridge to connect the new entrance/ancillary building to the new bus terminal building and rail platforms
  • A new pedestrian underground tunnel to connect the new entrance/ancillary building to the new bus terminal building and from the new bus terminal building to the existing TTC pedestrian tunnel and pedestrian pick up and drop off building
  • A new bus terminal building for MiWay and GO Transit operations
  • Renovations to the existing Kipling GO station building and existing TTC pedestrian pick-up and drop off building
  • Site infrastructure upgrades including parking and improved vehicular, bicycle and pedestrian accesses
  • The construction of a new private driveway for vehicular, bicycle and pedestrian accesses, including a new signalized intersection.

EDIT will now mobilize on-site to commence design and construction in spring 2018, with an expected substantial completion in winter 2019.

At the peak of construction, EDIT anticipates approximately 80 workers on-site, with the majority coming from the Greater Toronto Area.
