CNE Grounds Test Track

Jim Strasman as Design Architect for Arthur Erickson Architects

This project was a competition amongst a number of bidders to demonstrate their technology to the Urban Transportation Development Corporation (an arm of the Province of Ontario government). We were on the Hawker Siddley team with Cole Sherman. The test track circumnavigated the CNE grounds and the propulsion system was magnetic levitation.
We designed the guideway, the vehicle and 4 stations as well as the MSF building. Our approach was to develop the design of all of the components to be as modern and forward thinking as the technology.
