CANADA: Mosaic Transit Group has selected Thales to supply signalling for the Finch West light rail line being developed in Toronto. Thales is to supply its SelTrac CBTC technology.
Last year Greater Toronto & Hamilton Area transport authority Metrolinx selected Mosaic Transit Group to build the 11 km light rail line from Finch West metro station to Humber College with 18 stations. The consortium comprises Aecon, ACS Infrastructure Canada and CRH Canada Group, each with an equal share. Aecon and ACS Infrastructure Canada each have a 50% share in the 30-year maintenance agreement.
Opening of the partly-underground route is scheduled for 2023, with services to be operated by Toronto Transit Corp.
