Singapore, 6 November 2023 - ST Engineering today announced that its Urban Solutions business has secured a contract to provide its AGIL Platform Screen Door (PSD) solution for all 15 stations of the new Ontario Line, a rapid transit line in Toronto, Canada. It will deliver 360 sets of full-height PSDs for the new 15.6-kilometre line, which comprises a mix of tunnelled, above-ground and elevated stations. ST Engineering Urban Solutions’ contracted scope is expected to commence in late 2023, with PSD installation planned to begin in 2028. This contract adds to its growing global track record of over 200 rail projects in more than 50 cities.

Chew Men Leong, President of Urban Solutions at ST Engineering, said, “This win marks another milestone in our ongoing market expansion efforts in Canada, and reinforces our global Smart Mobility leadership position. Importantly, it demonstrates our advanced digital rail solutions, deep domain expertise and value that we bring to our customers. We are confident that this project will serve as a springboard to future opportunities in Canada and the U.S., and we look forward to contributing to this transformative transit project in Ontario.”

Certified for Safety Integrity Level 3 (SIL3) across all safety critical functions, the AGIL PSD solution is capable of withstanding harsh weather conditions including icy weather and heavy snowfall. The PSDs serve as vital safety barriers, enhancing commuter safety and reducing train delays due to unauthorised track intrusions or fallen objects on the tracks.

The Ontario Line is a priority transit project for the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area which will enable connectivity for commuters from Eglinton Avenue and Don Mills Road to Exhibition Place. The line will also connect with the wider transit network in Toronto, including other railway lines, streetcar and bus lines, and is expected to see a daily ridership of about 388,000 passengers when completed.
