Entuitive announced its scope of work as the prime design management consultant for the Eglinton Crosstown West Extension’s elevated guideway project. The design partnership is with Consor and Typsa, selected by Aecon. Entuitive will also be providing a suite of services for the project including design management, bridge engineering, construction engineering, and sustainability consulting.

“We are thrilled to provide a leading role in the design of the elevated guideway, which adds to our portfolio of critical infrastructure projects that are transforming our city,” says Michael Meschino, principal at Entuitive. “This western extension supplements our previously completed work on the Eglinton Crosstown line, further expanding the City of Toronto’s rapid future transit network. We look forward to collaborating with Metrolinx, Aecon, and all our design team partners for the successful delivery of this project.”

The 1.5 km elevated guideway will form an essential section of the 9.2-kilometre extension of the Eglinton Crosstown LRT line. The Eglinton Crosstown West Extension will run from Mount Dennis Station in the east to Renforth Drive in the west, featuring connections to UP Express and Kitchener GO train services, as well as TTC, GO, and MiWay bus services.

“Our team is thrilled to carry our preliminary design into construction, in consort with Aecon, our client and the constructor of the work for Metrolinx. The preliminary design was driven by the means and methods developed by the team working in collaboration to achieve this successful outcome. We can now fully develop that integration of construction and design to help ensure a successful project for our client and the owner,” says Stephen Brown, senior technical advisor at Entuitive.
