Toronto rail operator Metrolinx has brought in CH2M to provide programme management and engineering services as it looks to procure new trains for the Regional Express Rail (RER) programme.
CH2M will support Metrolinx as it prepares to procure new electric locomotives, electric multiple units (EMUs) and dual-mode locomotives.
The Government of Ontario is investing $15 billion in transport infrastructure over the next 10 years. The RER programme will include the electrification of the core Go rail network, new tracks and station upgrades.
Jeff Rankin, CH2M’s Ontario Transit Systems operations lead, said: “This investment in GO Transit will transform how its seven commuter rail corridors are used, bringing new transit options to residents throughout the GTHA.
He added: “We are honoured to continue our partnership with Metrolinx on these exciting developments.”
