Construction and infrastructure development company Aecon Group Inc. says it has been awarded a $279-million contract by Toronto Transit Commission to extend one of the city's main subway lines northward.

The agreement will add two additional subway stops beyond Downsview station, which is current at one end of the U-shaped Yonge-University-Spadina line.

The new stops will be Sheppard West station and Finch West station.

Part of the contract is a joint venture with McNally Construction, Kiewit Construction, and Aecon Constructors to construct 2.6 kilometres of twin tunnel subway track, the company said.

Construction will begin in December and is expected to continue until April, 2014.

"This award is an excellent illustration of the strategy and benefits of bringing Aecon Buildings into the Infrastructure group," said Teri McKibbon, chief executive of Aecon's Infrastructure group.

"Working together with our partners at McNally and Kiewit, this project will be planned and executed by a strong team including Aecon Buildings and Aecon Constructors personnel."

Aecon's infrastructure segment includes the construction of both public and private infrastructure, including roads and highways, as well as dams, tunnels and hydroelectric power projects.
