Two Spanish construction companies win contracts
to build part of new subway

The TTC and the City of Toronto have awarded two giant Spanish construction companies a $400-million contract to build part project to extend the 1 Yonge - University - Spadina subway to York University and Vaughan.

Fomento de Construcciones y Contratas (FCC), working in a joint venture with construction and environmental infrastructure company, Obrascon Huarte Lain (OHL), will build the tunnels at the north end of the new subway and Highway 407 Station.

They’ll build a 4.5 kilometre tunnel on the 8.6-kilometre route and use up $404,387,479 of the total $2.6-billion that the provincial, federal and municipal governments are supplying to build the line. The subway extension opens in 2015.

The two companies will also work on the York University Station and on the traffic management plan for Finch West Station.

The consortium of the two Spanish companies submitted the lowest bid for the job.

FCC has also worked on rail projects in New Delhi, Singapore and Athens.
