LEA Consulting Ltd. is extremely pleased that Metrolinx and York Region Rapid Transit Corporation (YRRTC) have selected EDCO as the preferred proponent to design, build and finance the dedicated York Viva Bus Rapid Transit rapidways along the Highway 7 transit corridor in the City of Vaughan and Town of Richmond Hill.
EDCO is a joint venture of EllisDon Capital Inc. and Coco Paving Inc., supported by a Design-Build joint venture of EllisDon Civil Ltd. and Coco Paving Inc., and a Design Team of IBI Group, LEA Consulting Ltd., and Peto MacCallum Ltd. The EDCO team brings together expertise in design, construction and financing, and strong understanding of the local community.
Once the final contract details have been negotiated, EDCO will deliver the vivaNext segments, including approximately 12 kilometres of rapidways, ten new vivastations, bridge widenings, culvert extensions and enhanced boulevards, along the existing Highway 7 transit corridor. The first segment will extend from Helen Street to Interchange Way/Edgeley Boulevard, and the second segment from Bowes Road to Yonge Street via the existing Centre Street and Bathurst Street route.
