The Toronto-York Spadina Subway Extension (TYSSE) Project is undertaking an extension of the existing Spadina Subway Line from Downsview Station, located in the City of Toronto, to the proposed Vaughan Corporate Centre (VCC) in the City of Vaughan, Region of York. The TYSSE is a joint City of Toronto/Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) and York Region Project. The TTC will directly manage the TYSSE Project on behalf of the City of Toronto and York Region.
To accommodate the extra trains required by the subway extension, extra storage tracks are required to store the trains in Wilson Yard. This requires extra storage tracks, runaround tracks, and a connection from Wilson Yard to the northbound line at the crossover south of Downsview Station.
SICE Canada Inc. will be responsible for the supply, installation, test and commission Integrated Controls and Communication equipment in the expanded Wilson Yard and new Wilson Yard Substation North that will provide 600 VDC traction power to operate the trains.
