Work on Ontario Line Still on Track
The Ontario government has issued Requests for Proposals to design and build the Pape Tunnel, underground stations, and the elevated guideway and stations for the Ontario Line subway.
The contract for the Pape Tunnel and underground stations will deliver three kilometres of twin tunnels and two new stations – one at Cosburn Avenue and another at Pape Avenue, where the all-new Ontario Line will connect to the existing Line 2.
The contract will also include the construction of two new portals, which will be where the line transitions between above-ground and underground operations.
Construction for the Ontario Line is currently underway at Exhibition Station, at the site of the future Corktown and Moss Park stations, and in the joint rail corridor east of the Don River.
Once complete, the approximate 15.6-kilometre Ontario Line will accommodate nearly 400,000 trips each day across the GTA.
