13 May Spray Applied Waterproofing Installed on Five Metrolinx Bridges
A high performance spray applied waterproofing membrane was installed on five bridges as part of the $1.2 Billion Metrolinx Georgetown South Expansion project.
TORONTO, CANADA – High performance spray applied waterproofing was recently installed on the Kipling Avenue and Highway 27 bridges, both part of the Metrolinx Georgetown South Project.
Because of increasing GO Transit ridership demands, the Georgetown South Project was designed to provide much needed infrastructure improvements that will help meet these current demands, as well as accommodate future growth. Scheduled for completion in 2015, this $1.2 billion capital investment project is funded through the Province of Ontario and the Government of Canada, and will provide an additional 10 GO trains for a total of 29 trains on the Kitchener line.
Kipling Avenue and Highway 27 Bridges
In an effort to accommodate anticipated future growth, new spans were added to both the Kipling Avenue and Highway 27 bridges. The new additional width will allow more tracks and is part of a significant infrastructure expansion. The cold liquid spray applied waterproofing membrane manufactured by Bridge Preservation LLC. was utilized because of its fast cure time, superior performance characteristics, and ability to accept direct ballast loading just one hour after placement of the membrane.
