Metro Vancouver reports, “The transportation ministry is advancing to the request for proposal stage with three groups that will bid to build the planned $3.5-billion new bridge and Highway 99 upgrades to replace the Massey Tunnel. The three groups of partnered companies in the running are:
- Gateway Mobility Solutions, which includes ACS Infrastructure Canada and Aecon Concessions, along with Dragados and Flatiron Constructors as design-build contractors.
- Lower Mainland Contractors, which includes Kiewit Canada, Macquarie and VINCI Concessions.
- Pacific Skyway Partners, which includes Fluor Canada, John Laing Investment and SNC-Lavalin Capital.
The winning bidder, to be chosen by next summer, is to raise $750 million to partly finance the project, as well as design, build and operate it.”
