AECOM secures Ontario Line tunnel design contract


DALLAS – AECOM (NYSE:ACM), a global infrastructure consulting firm, has been selected to provide design services for the Pape Tunnel and Underground Stations (PTUS) contract, part of the Ontario Line project in Toronto.

The Ontario Line is a planned 15.6-kilometer rapid transit line intended to enhance Toronto’s public transportation system and reduce travel times for commuters.

The PTUS contract, awarded by Infrastructure Ontario and Metrolinx, involves a multi-stage design process under a Development and Master Construction Agreement (DMCA). AECOM will join the Pape North Connect consortium, which includes Arcadis, Webuild Civil Work Inc., and Fomento de Construcciones y Contratas Canada Ltd., to finalize the project’s scope, risk allocation, and pricing.

AECOM’s role in the Ontario Line project has expanded, with the company now leading technical design for the full length of the approximately 10-kilometer tunnel works and three interchange stations. Mark Southwell, chief executive of AECOM’s global Transportation business, expressed pride in the team’s continued support for Infrastructure Ontario and Metrolinx.

The PTUS contract’s scope covers three kilometers of twin tunnels under Pape Avenue, two underground stations, three emergency exit and service buildings, and a crossover near Sammon Avenue. The project aims to create thousands of job opportunities annually during construction and bring more than 227,500 Toronto residents within a 10-minute walk of an Ontario Line station.

AECOM is recognized for delivering professional services across the project lifecycle, including planning, design, engineering, and construction management. The company, which reported revenue of US$14.4 billion in fiscal year 2023, emphasizes its commitment to environmental, social, and governance priorities.

This announcement is based on a press release statement, and it reflects AECOM’s forward-looking plans for the Ontario Line project. The actual results may vary based on various factors, including economic conditions and project developments.
