Government of Ontario agency Metrolinx has selected Bowmanville Construction Partners (BCP) for the Bowmanville Extension. BCP, which is made up of Ledcor CMI and Dragados Canada, will help inform the detailed design and provide construction management advice for the project.

The project will extend the Lakeshore East Go Line nearly 20km to Bowmanville and is expected to account for nearly 17,000 daily trips by 2041.

There will be new track and signal infrastructure as well as seven new bridges, including a new rail alignment over Highway 401. There will also be reconstruction and modification of existing bridges.

Near the end of the development stage, the construction manager will provide an estimated construction schedule and a target price for the proposed work. Metrolinx and the construction manager will then negotiate terms of a construction contract, including costs and other logistics.
