  • Station Design Update Meeting: Open House Avenue Road to Bayview

    1. 1. Open House Avenue Road to Bayview Avenue 1
    2. 2. East Tunnel Construction Timeline  Contract award  Construction of launch shaft – 1 year  Utility relocation at headwalls  Construction of headwalls – 6 to 8 months  Construction of extraction shaft at Yonge Street 2
    3. 3. Tunnel Boring Machine  The construction of new tunnels under Eglinton Avenue is done by tunnel boring machines (TBMs).  Each TBM moves forward by pushing off against concrete segments.  The operator advances the machine as soil is removed from the TBM face through a conveyor system.  The launch pit remains active for removal of muck/spoils. 3
    4. 4. Launch of the Tunnel Boring Machine  The Eglinton Crosstown tunnel will consist of sideby-side or twin tunnels.  Each tunnel will be 6.75 metres internal diameter.  Initially, one machine will begin excavation; the other will follow on a parallel course soon after. 4
    5. 5. Eye of the tunnel The TBM is carefully aligned with the eye of the tunnel. The machine will break through this focal point to start excavation. 5
    6. 6. Preparing the site  Workers lay track during the assembly and launch phase  The pieces of the TBMs are lowered into the shaft and assembled 6
    7. 7. Launch Shaft Operations  To keep the tunnel safe for the crew a ventilation system pumps fresh air into the tunnel and exhaust air is moved out of the tunnel.  Cranes remain in position during the mining operation; muck will be hauled out and new concrete tunnel segments will be delivered. 7
    8. 8. Tunnelling Begins  Tunnel boring machines work beneath Eglinton Avenue  Business activities and traffic will continue with this method.  A single TBM will tunnel 75 metres per week.  Each machine is capable of moving 500 cubic metres of earth per day.  The machines are made in Toronto by Caterpillar Tunnelling Canada Corporation, formerly LOVAT, a world leader in tunnel boring machine manufacturing. 8

New Approach: Alternative Financing and Procurement (AFP) Public Private Partnership models have been underway in Canada for 20 years 165 projects 21 transportation projects $51 billion total project value Canada-wide examples  Canada Line rapid transit project (Vancouver)  Autoroute 25 (Montréal)  Trans-Canada Highway (Atlantic Canada) Ontario examples     40 Pan Am games athletes village Ottawa Light Rail Transit Highway 407 East Phase 1 The Rt. Hon. Herb Gray Parkway (Formerly the Windsor Essex Parkway
    41. 41. Owner’s Role Changes with AFP 41
    42. 42. New Approach: Advantages of (AFP)  Increased capacity to bring projects to market  Transfer of risk • Appropriate risks transferred to private sector to ensure “on time, on budget” delivery and offer value for money • Design, construction, cost escalation, schedule delays, operations, maintenance, life cycle, financial risk  Cost certainty • Optimal cost combination: combines capital, maintenance and life cycle costs • Integration of design and construction 42
    43. 43. New Approach: Roles and Responsibilities in the Design Build Finance Maintain model Metrolinx Role  Design • Overall scope (inclusion of maintenance, operations, etc.) • Project-Specific Output Specifications (with Consultant team) • Real Estate Acquisition (with City of Toronto)  Build • Oversee Construction Phase • Quality Assurance 43  Finance • Project Budget • With Infrastructure Ontario run a competetive prcurement process; select the winning contractor  Maintain • Testing & Commissioning (with Toronto Transit Commission) • Safety Certification and Project Acceptance  TTC to operate • Integrated with existing TTC system
