Consortium Moves on to Bid Stage

Infrastructure Ontario and Metrolinx have announced the shortlist of four approved bidders to participate in the RFP stage for the Go Rail Expansion - Union Station Enhancement Project. HH Angus is a member of the OneUnion Alliance team bidding for this important infrastructure project that is Canada’s busiest inter-city rail service area and the second busiest railway station in North America, serving more than 72 million passengers each year.


OneUnion Alliance
is led by constructors Aecon, Modern Niagara and PNR RailWorks and also includes Mott MacDonald, Systra and HH Angus. Shortlisted teams were selected based on their team composition, experience with collaborative project delivery, health and safety, and previous related work.

The project will include:

  • Construction of new platforms, with canopies and vertical access elements, such as stairs and elevators
  • Construction of two new tracks designed to allow for future passenger train speed up to 45mph, with associated signal works
  • Construction of a new concourse area below the new platforms that will connect the York, Bay and Via Concourse, Union Square and the Scotiabank Galleria and both York and Bay Streets
  • Storm water management system and other building systems.

The project is expected to be awarded by summer 2020.
