Union Station Rail Corridor Signalling System

In by SEO Anseo

This highly complex project is testament to our railroad scheduling capabilities.

Green Aspects is currently working closely with the client to implement major signalling and train control upgrades, as well as replacement or enhancement of physical infrastructure within the Toronto Union Station Rail Corridor (USRC). The USRC is 6.4km long and comprises an intricate arrangement of approach tracks, passenger platforms, and four Interlockings at Cherry Street, Scott Street, John Street, and Bathurst Street. It has 14 station tracks with platform access and more than 180 signals, 250 switch machines, 40km of circuited track, and all associated infrastructure, dating back to the late 1920s.

To ensure project delivery in accordance with scope and schedule requirements, we work daily with the Client Project Management Team to establish and maintain the project baseline schedule. We also analyze the suppliers schedule in order to facilitate the decision-making process.

On a monthly basis, we create and present the client with a dashboard of the current project status. This dashboard is used to highlight key areas of concern in an easy-to-understand format. Based on the results of the dashboard, we develop annual and multi-year schedules for management approval. This method has proved effective and has now been implemented on most of our projects.
