MISSISSAUGA - The request for proposals stage has closed for teams to submit their bids to design, build and finance the Cooksville Station project, part of the GO Regional Express Rail (RER) program. 

Following a fair, open and transparent request for qualifications process, two teams - EllisDon Infrastructure Transit and Kenaidan Obayashi Transit Partner - were prequalified and invited to respond to a request for proposals in January 2017. Both teams have submitted their proposals by today's deadline. 

Over the next several months, Infrastructure Ontario and Metrolinx will evaluate the proposals and a successful proponent is expected to be announced in fall 2017. A fairness monitor is overseeing the entire procurement process.

The scope of work for the Cooksville project includes a new station building; upgrades to the platform access tunnels; a new six-storey parking structure and redevelopment of parking areas; and a bus loop with a minimum of eight bus bays for GO and MiWay bus service. 

Ontario is making the largest infrastructure investment in hospitals, schools, public transit, roads and bridges in the province's history. To learn more about what's happening in your community, visit Ontario.ca/BuildON.

Quick Facts:

  • The project is being delivered under IO's Alternative Financing and Procurement model, which transfers risks associated with design, construction and financing of the project to the private sector.
  • Work on the Milton corridor is part of a larger, system-wide plan to improve overall GO Transit service, including the delivery of Regional Express Rail (RER). RER will provide faster and more frequent service across the GO rail network, with electrified service on core segments, including the Union Pearson Express. It is one of the largest transit infrastructure investments in North America.
