Lakeshore East-West Railway Corridor in Canada

We grow in North America

Pursuing our goal of growing in English-speaking markets, in February 2021, the Lakeshore East-West corridor became our first project in Canada.  

Sacyr, in consortium with local partner Ledcor, is developing packages B and C of the Lakeshore East-West rail corridor expansion, as well as the associated infrastructure, for the public transportation operator in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton metropolitan area

The LSEW line is the oldest in the entire Toronto city transport network, and the second with the highest volume of traffic. The work includes the conditioning and preparation works for the installation of a future fourth track, which seeks to accomodate a 400% increase in the daily volume of passengers.  

The works to be developed include the adaptation of approximately 6 km of slope for the track layout: the extension of the platform by 3.54 km, which will require the construction of six retaining walls (1.8 km), in addition to the extension of three railway bridges, embankments, a final layer of sub-ballast and drainage works. 

We will also execute the 2.74 km extension with the construction of five retaining walls (822 m), extending a culvert to channel a stream under the railroad, grading and land clearing. 

Some of the benefits consequence of this railway development will be lighter road traffic, the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and less fuel consumption, as well as the improvement of the quality of life of users and faster travel times.
