Highway 407 Subway Station Construction and Northern Tunnels Begins

April 8, 2011

The second major contract for the Toronto-York Spadina Subway Extension (TYSSE) project was awarded in January 2011 to Obrascon Huarte Lain (OHL), in joint venture with Fomento de Construcciones y Contratas (FCC)for the Highway 407 Subway Station & Northern Tunnels contract. Construction is underway for this contract which includes construction of the Highway 407 Station and tunnelling of 6.6 kilometres of tunnel by 2 of the 4 Tunnel Boring Machines (TBMs). The tunnelling and station construction activities will run in parallel. A construction area has been established on the west side of Jane Street south of Highway 407 for station construction. The advanced launch shaft is located on the northwest section of York University’s Keele campus at Northwest Gate and Steeles Avenue West.

Advanced Contract Construction

Construction starts up again on April 11th on the advanced construction of enabling works for Highway 407 Subway Station. Work this spring includes building a new six (6) lane clear span bridge, building access roads, installing traffic signals and medians, and the widening of Jane Street. Construction of the enabling works for the future Highway 407 Subway Station will be completed this summer.
