Nova Scotia has shortlisted three teams for its CAD 285m (USD 214.89m) Highway 104 Twinning P3 project.

The three shortlisted teams are Atlantic Safelink Partners, Dexter Nova Alliance and Osprey Transportation Solutions, according to a 24 January press release.

A source told Inframation that the three teams include the following firms:

•   Osprey Transportation Solutions: ACS, Dragados, Colas, Miller

•   Atlantic Safelink Partners: Fengate, Vinci, Parsons

•   Dexter Nova Alliance: Dexter Construction

A team led by Sacyr also returned qualifications but was not shortlisted, added the source.

The request for proposals (RFP) will be issued to the shortlisted teams in the coming weeks.

The department expects to announce the winner in early 2020. The twinning of Highway 104 is to be completed by the end of 2023.

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 province is not considering the implementation of any tolls to finance the project.
