Designing and Constructing the Finch LRT – January 14, 2020
Location: Toronto, ON
The design of a new 18 stop light rail transit (LRT) system is currently being designed to connect the northeast and northwest ends of Toronto. At the end of 2017, Mosaic Transit Group was awarded the contract by Infrastructure Ontario. Construction is expected to be complete by 2023.
Designing this 11 km stretch of transit along a major traffic route presents many unique project constraints. Overcoming these obstacles and delivering a successful project requires diverse teams and creative solutions. This event will feature a panel presentation from three key perspectives in the project. Attendees will then have the floor to ask any questions and participate in a thought-provoking discussion.
