Metrolinx is overseeing what it claims is the largest transportation investment in the history of Ontario, Canada.

Among the projects Metrolinx is working on is the expansion of GO Transit, expansion of subway systems in the Greater Toronto area, and a scheme to make fast, frequent and reliable transport more accessible.

Under the five-year SACMS, it will establish a framework of vendor firms that Metrolinx can call upon for current and future work for a range of services related to the delivery of its capital projects.

Jacobs vice president and program director, major programs, Neil Walker, said, “As we continue our work with Metrolinx, we’ll integrate and leverage our local and international resources to meet their evolving needs.

“With our global program management experience including delivering U.K.’s Crossrail and Grand Central Madison in New York City, we’re well-positioned to support Metrolinx transformative projects as they pioneer progressive contracting and delivery models and prepare for introducing reliable new rail services.”
