Ontario Line Banner

Toronto, Ontario - Architecture49 (A49) proudly announces our recent win in securing the design contract for three pivotal stations within the Ontario Line Elevated Guideway and Stations (EGS) project. The Ontario Line, a 15.6-kilometre stand-alone rapid transit like is set to revolutionize Toronto's transportation landscape, running from Exhibition Place, through the heart of downtown, all the way to the Ontario Science Centre bringing 15 new stations to the city. Ontario Line will provide several transit connection options including the Eglinton Crosstown LRT, TTC Line 1, Line 2, and to the GO network, and numerous TTC streetcar and bus routes.

The scope of our contract encompasses the design of three crucial stations: Science Centre Station, Flemingdon Park Station, and Thorncliffe Park Station. These stations will serve as integral hubs within the broader network, facilitating faster, more frequent, and reliable access to rapid transit for the city's residents and visitors.

The Ontario Line EGS project, led by WSP in Canada in collaboration with the Trillium Guideway Partners consortium, represents a monumental endeavor aimed at enhancing transit infrastructure and connectivity throughout Toronto. Key components of the project include the development of three kilometres of elevated guideway, five elevated stations, an emergency exit building, interfaces with the maintenance and storage facility, and connections with the Eglinton Crosstown LRT Line 5.

"We are thrilled to be a part of this transformative project that will redefine urban mobility in Toronto. Our team is committed to delivering innovative and sustainable design solutions that will not only optimize the functionality of these stations but also enhance the overall commuter experience." Shery Cherian, Principal Transportation Architect

The Ontario Line is poised to revolutionize transportation in Toronto by providing faster travel times, reducing crowding on existing subway lines, and unlocking access to thousands of additional jobs within a 45-minute transit radius. Moreover, the project is expected to spur economic growth and community development along the transit corridor while mitigating traffic congestion, greenhouse gas emissions, and fuel consumption.

Utilizing a Progressive Design-Build (PDB) model, the Ontario Line EGS project promotes collaboration among stakeholders, fostering a holistic approach to project delivery that prioritizes community engagement and innovation.
