23/03/2021

Sacyr Engineering and Infrastructure has been awarded its first two projects in Canada, expanding the platform for the future fourth track of the Lakeshore East-West (LSEW) rail corridor in Toronto. The amount of the two contracts is 50.5 million euros.

In a consortium with its local partner, Ledcor, Sacyr will deliver two “packages” of the platform expansion project, six kilometers in total, an undertaking awarded by the local entity, Metrolinx:

• The first contract (package B) will involve extending the platform by 3.54 km, section of the rail corridor, an undertaking commissioned by the local entity, Metrolinx. The project will entail the construction of six retaining walls (1.8 km), the expansion of three existing railway bridges, embankments, a final sub-ballast layer, and drainage works.

• The second contract (package C) will entail a 2.74-km expansion, with the construction of five retaining walls (822 meters), the channeling of a stream beneath the track, embankments, clearings, a final sub-ballast layer, and drainage works.

In carrying out these works, the consortium, together with Metrolinx, will work with the communities within the scope of the project, ensuring the utmost respect for the environment and the surroundings, and the highest standards of sustainability and respect for biodiversity.

With these contracts, Sacyr advances the company’s strategy to expand into the North American market.

North America

Sacyr began its construction activity in the United States in 2018 and since that time has won seven contracts in Florida and Texas, augmenting a project portfolio of more than 640 million dollars (575 million euros).

In 2020, the company signed its first P3 in the US to manage and improve power and water services at the University of Idaho for a period of 50 years, with a revenue portfolio of 1.2 billion.
