Stay Safe Near Waterways as Spring Approaches PDF Print E-mail
Government - Region of Peel
Tuesday, 10 March 2015 18:07

March 10, 2015 – Following record breaking cold in January and February, conservation authorities remind residents of the dangers near streams, rivers, ponds and lakes as spring gets closer.

Slippery, unstable stream banks and frigid water temperatures lead to hazardous conditions close to any body of water. This year it will be especially important to keep family and pets away from the edge of all waterways. Please stay safe near water and help make this an enjoyable spring.

Environment Canada monitoring shows this past February set a number of cold weather records, including coldest daily temperature and no days above zero in individual cities. The bone-chilling cold has led to widespread ice cover in Greater Toronto Area rivers and streams as well as the Great Lakes.

Warming temperatures and spring rainfall are likely to speed up melting ice and snow. This will lead to higher, faster flowing water and potentially quicker ice break-up in watercourses. There could be increased risk of localized flooding in low-lying areas and in areas where ice jams might occur.

Credit Valley Conservation and conservation authorities in the GTA will continue to closely monitor changing conditions. They will issue flood outlook and flood warning messages as necessary. For more information, contact your local conservation authority:

 
Request for Qualifications Issued for the Port Credit Station Redevelopment PDF Print E-mail
Government - Province of Ontario
Monday, 02 March 2015 20:42

TORONTO, March 2, 2015 – Infrastructure Ontario, together with Metrolinx, has released a request for qualifications (RFQ) to pre-qualify and short-list companies to redevelop the Port Credit GO Station.

The area surrounding Port Credit GO Station was designated a mobility hub in Metrolinx's regional transportation plan, The Big Move, and the station has been identified as an ideal site for redevelopment. Mobility hubs are places of connectivity where different modes of transportation – from walking to biking to riding transit – come together seamlessly and where there is an intensive concentration of working and living.

The redevelopment of Port Credit GO Station will bring improved station facilities while better connecting retailers, employers and residents with frequent and reliable transit options. Focusing growth and development around major transit stations promotes increased ridership, allows more people to live near transit services and makes more destinations accessible by transit. Metrolinx has been working with the City of Mississauga closely in the lead up to this and are committed to working with the community through this process.

Metrolinx and Infrastructure Ontario are committed to an open, fair and competitive procurement process. The RFQ is the first step in a competitive tendering process to select a team to develop and deliver new station infrastructure at the Port Credit GO Station. A copy of the request for qualifications document is available at www.merx.com.

The new station infrastructure will be delivered using a design-build procurement model, and the mixed-use, transit-oriented development project will be completed by the private sector. This model will provide the public sector an opportunity to maximize the value of the real estate and transportation assets, while transferring project risks to the private sector, in order to deliver the projects on time and on budget.

RFQ submissions will be reviewed to pre-qualify project teams with demonstrated experience in the development, design and financing of mixed use projects that exhibit excellence in design, place-making and integration of transit, and the delivery of large, complex infrastructure projects. Short-listed teams will be invited to respond to a request for proposals, expected to be released in fall 2015.

Infrastructure Ontario (IO) is a Crown agency of the Province of Ontario that works to deliver public benefits through partnerships with the private sector. IO delivers large, complex public infrastructure projects using a made-in-Ontario modern procurement and project management practice called Alternative Financing and Procurement (AFP). IO also partners with the private sector to manage one of the largest real estate portfolios in Canada, provides municipalities and eligible public-sector clients with loans to renew public infrastructure, and leverages its private-sector expertise to advise the provincial public-sector clients on commercial transactions.

Metrolinx is an agency of the Province of Ontario. The development of Metrolinx lands within the Port Credit Mobility Hub and the delivery of new station infrastructure is part of Metrolinx's regional transportation plan to provide residents and businesses in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area with fast, convenient and integrated transit. Working through its divisions GO Transit, PRESTO and Union Pearson Express, Metrolinx is transforming the way the region moves.

Quotes

"Today's announcement to redevelop the Port Credit GO Station aligns perfectly with our government's plan to create one-stop transit hubs integrated with residential, retail and employment and that provide seamless connections with other transit systems. This is proof of our commitment to making the daily commute and quality of life better for Ontario families."
– Steven Del Duca, Minister of Transportation

"This project is the first of its kind for Metrolinx. This is a great example of how we intend to work with the private sector to enhance the connectivity, community cohesiveness and local commerce of Port Credit while supporting transit-oriented development."
– Bruce McCuaig, Metrolinx, President and CEO

"Infrastructure Ontario has extensive real estate experience in large, complex procurements. We are pleased to oversee the procurement process and assist Metrolinx in their selection of a preferred proponent to redevelop Port Credit GO Station for the benefit of the community's transit riders."
– Bert Clark, Infrastructure Ontario President and CEO
