TransEd Partners Awarded Largest Infrastructure Project in Edmonton's History

Toronto - The City of Edmonton has named TransEd Partners the preferred proponent to design, build, finance, operate, maintain and supply vehicles for the Valley Line Light Rail Transit – Stage 1 project. The Valley Line will be delivered using the Public-Private Partnership model. The successful TransEd Partners consortium is made up of Bechtel, Bombardier, EllisDon and Fengate Capital Management.

"TransEd Partners is excited to be working alongside the City of Edmonton on this important project to expand the local LRT network. Our team looks forward to improving the travel options accessible to the citizens of Edmonton in a safe, sustainable, and affordable manner," Mac Bell, Bid Director, TransEd Partners.

The Valley Line LRT is a significant part of the City of Edmonton's transportation plan and will cater to the demands of one of Canada's fastest growing cities, which is expected to increase in size by 50 percent by 2040. The proposed multi-phased, 27-kilometer urban route will ultimately create 25 new stops and 3 stations, serving an estimated 100,000 daily commuters. The line will run southeast to west from Mill Woods to Lewis Farms, crossing through Edmonton's downtown core.

The Valley Line LRT – Stage 1 project encompasses the 13.1-km, 12-stop/1-station portion between Mill Woods and 102 Street, connecting commuters with the Capital Line and Metro Line at Churchill Station. The project is currently on schedule for construction to begin in 2016.

"We feel confident that TransEd Partners shares Edmonton's vision for its future, and is the right partner to bring this vision to life," said Acting City Manager, Linda Cochrane. "The procurement process on this project has been very robust and the final deal is one that offers strong value for taxpayers."

Members of the TransEd Partners team have successfully delivered (and currently maintain and operate) a number of major transportation-related infrastructure projects across Canada and the world. This includes the Ottawa Confederation Line LRT, the New Jersey Transit River Line LRT, the Dublin Luas Line B1 LRT, the Nottingham Express LRT, the Dulles Metrorail Extension (phase 1), and the Eglinton Crosstown LRT.
