Join 6ix is a multinational consortium comprising Transdev Canada, Plenary Americas, Webuild and Hitachi Rail.
The RSSOM challenge is one in every of a number of contracts to ship the Ontario Line, a 15.6km-long fast transit metro line that can cross downtown Toronto in Canada.
The challenge, to be undertaken as a public-private partnership, consists of the design, development and upkeep of the rails for the tunnels of the brand new Ontario Line, in addition to the signalling, communications and security programs.
It’s one in every of a number of contracts concerned within the development of the road, which can join the Ontario Science Centre within the north-east with Ontario Place within the south-west on the shore of Lake Ontario. The road, half of which will probably be underground, could have 15 stations and greater than 40 connections to different metro strains, regional trains and bus providers.
Webuild has an estimated €450 million (£390 million) stake within the joint-venture accountable for the civil works and a ten% stake within the Join 6ix challenge firm. Monetary shut is predicted to happen later this 12 months.
