Crosslinx LRT Expansion
Soil management on Canada's largest transit expansion project.
Crosslinx’s paper-based soil management system used for hauler tracking and invoicing did not meet the growing demand from Metrolinx for increased oversight and environmental reporting.
The existing paper ticket process used to track and invoice soil movement was inefficient, costly, and left plenty of room for error and abuse. Project Owners were left in the dark on progress updates while consultants chased down subcontractors to find missing information.
This created growing costs for Metrolinx, from both a project budget and environmental liability standpoint.
What Crosslinx needed was a comprehensive solution that could capture its soil management workflows. Excavation and hauling data had to be shared across multiple sites and parties with efficiency and key insights.
SoilFLO was deployed as a pilot at Chaplin station, used to track clean and contaminated fill going to two disposal sites.
Crosslinx was now able to see soil move from cradle to grave. Contractors were able to easily verify hauler invoices and consultants had automated soil movement reports for regulatory requirement
Foremen were also able to gain insights to managing haulers on-site. Inefficient haulers were flagged and accurate turn around times were set to hold drivers accountable.
