North America: Three teams identified for Nova Scotia Highway P3

24 August 2018 - 12:00 am UTC

Inframation has identified three teams that are lining up to respond to a request for qualifications (RFQ) for the Nova Scotia P3 Highway project.

The teams are:
 
•    ACS, Dragados, Colas, Miller
•    Fengate, Vinci, Parsons 
•    Dexter Construction 
 
The RFQ was issued in late July. The deadline for qualifications is 30 October.
 
The DBFOM project will see the 38 miles of highway between Sutherland’s River in Pictou County and Antigonish twinned. It will also include a new 10-kilometer, four-lane alignment between Barneys River and James River, south of the existing highway 104. This addition was made necessary by the area’s topography and terrain, as well as a river and rail line.

The spokesperson said the highway expansion will not be tolled. Payments to the private sector will be made out over time by the provincial and federal governments.

Construction should begin in early 2020 and the goal is to have that portion twinned and ready for use by 2024.

The identified companies declined to comment.
