The RSSOM project is one of several contracts to deliver the Ontario Line, a 15.6-kilometre-long standalone rapid transit line that will connect the Ontario Science Centre to Exhibition/Ontario Place with 15 stations and more than 40 connections to existing transit options along the route.
The RSSOM scope of work includes a design and construction and a 30-year operations and maintenance phase that includes the following commitments:
Toronto, Ontario, Canada
IBI Group Professional Services
O&M and Rehabilitation
Financial close date
Rolling Stock and Systems:
The RSSOM project will deliver a fully driverless metro system with GoA4 grade automation using proven technologies that have been implemented in systems across diverse geographic regions such as Riyadh, Lima, Milan, Rome and Copenhagen. The unique train design focuses on the passenger experience and incorporates features such as open gangways to allow free passenger movement throughout, an integrated passenger visual information system, onboard Wi-Fi, accessibility features, and platform edge doors.
To support the fleet, Connect 6ix will deliver a fully integrated systems package including all power systems, overhead contact system, platform edge doors, signalling, communications, and security, supervisory control and data Acquisition (SCADA).
Maintenance and Storage Facility (MSF) and Civil Works:
The RSSOM project includes the design and construction of a LEED Silver-certified building which will serve as the command centre for all Ontario Line operations and maintenance activities. The OMSF campus will include a maintenance building, a washing plant, a maintenance of way building, a test track, a stabling yard, a traction power substation building, a step-up substation building and two operations control centres with one acting as a backup to provide operations with critical redundancy if one goes down. The OMSF will be capable of accommodating an expanded fleet to meet the growing needs of Toronto and the surrounding region. The RSSOM project includes all trackwork and guideway fit-out throughout the entire alignment.
The Ontario Line Subway System will bring significant benefits to the local communities and economy through:
Connect 6ix anticipates that its work on the RSSOM contract will support an estimated 800 jobs, with the majority of jobs to come from the Greater Toronto Area.
