AECOM announced GrandLinq, a public-private partnership (P3) in which it participates, awarded a contract by the Region of Waterloo in Ontario, Canada.

The GrandLinq P3 will design, build, finance, operate and maintain a new at-grade light rail transit (LRT) system between the cities of Waterloo and Kitchener. The contract is expected to be worth approximately $23 million to AECOM.

As the P3’s design lead, AECOM is responsible for the project’s detailed design, including track, civil, utilities, architecture, structural, landscape, systems and environmental services.

Known as ION, the LRT system consists of 11 miles of track, 19 stops, 13 traction power stations, and a new operations and maintenance facility to house and service the ION vehicle fleet.

A focal point of the project will be the construction of a major grade separation for a future intermodal transit facility. Other notable scope elements include two new rail structures and public infrastructure works.

Work on the project has already commenced. Project construction is expected to be completed by 2017.
