    Queens Quay Waterfront Revitalisation project opens

    The recently opened Queen’s Quay has transitioned from a vehicle-heavy thoroughfare to a public waterfront focused on pedestrians, cycling, and light-rail transit. Working with Waterfront Toronto, DTAH, and West 8, Arup was a key collaborator from inception through to project completion. We provided multidisciplinary infrastructure engineering services from the design competition through to the feasibility study, environmental assessment, schematic design, and detailed design. We also provided engineering support during construction.
