The consortium led by Strabag wins contract to build tunnels in Toronto

Infrastructure Ontario (IO) and Metrolinx have awarded a fixed-price contract of $255 million to Strabag Inc. to design, build and finance the second underground segment of the Eglinton Crosstown West Extension, which includes a 500-metre tunnel from east of Jane Street to Mount Dennis Station.

The Eglinton Crosstown West Extension Advance Tunnel 2 project underwent an open, fair and competitive procurement process overseen by a third-party fairness advisor. Strabag Inc. submitted the proposal that delivers the best value for Ontario taxpayers.

The project is being delivered through IO's public-private partnership (P3) model, which transfers appropriate risks associated with design, construction and financing of the project to the private sector.

Enabling works for the project are underway and major construction is expected to begin later in 2024.
