2.11.09 - “Over the next decade, a re-elected PC government will […] build and expand public transit, including […]: [the] Yonge-North subway extension”
Building the Yonge extension was a promise during the Ford government’s first mandate (see more here). In December 2023, the Ontario government issued a Request for Proposals for the Advance Tunnel Contract. As steps have been taken to build infrastructure to enable the Yonge-North extension, this promise is considered in progress.
“The Ontario government is taking another step forward to get shovels in the ground on the Yonge North Subway Extension by issuing a Request for Proposals (RFP) for the contract to design and build the subway’s tunnels. […] The issuance of the RFP comes as the project reaches another important milestone. Early upgrade work at Finch Station, where the Yonge North Subway Extension will connect with existing Line 1 service, is now substantially complete. The upgrades set the stage for major construction of the subway extension.”
“The Ontario government is one step closer to getting shovels in the ground on the Yonge North Subway Extension. Today, the province issued a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) for the Advance Tunnel Contract […] Early work on the Yonge North Subway Extension is currently underway at Finch Station, where workers are making upgrades to accommodate the future subway service.”
“The Yonge North Subway Extension is reaching an important milestone as a shortlist of bidders will be invited to submit their proposals for how they’ll make early upgrades at Finch Station to accommodate the extension.”
“Metrolinx and Infrastructure Ontario are teaming up with municipal and regional partners to move the Yonge North Subway Extension forward quickly, in the best way possible. “
