Period: 2012 – 2014
GPO was awarded with the Detailed Design (Phase I and II) for the extension of the Highway 407 East in Toronto, Canada, deemed as one of the world’s biggest road infrastructures under concession. The project entails the construction of 16.5 km of new highway, with certain stretches comprising up to five lanes per direction, with more than 36 km of branches and access roads, and 4 new links.
The alignment has been designed taking into account aesthetic and environmental matters, including gardened embankments, rainwater sewerage pools, as well as a system of drains and sewers for urban roads. The 407 ETR is pioneer in the implementation of the most modern toll systems, equipped with cameras and licence-recognition transponders, which replace traditional toll booths.
