· Three years of work to support traffic growth
· Contract worth €62.5 million
The Ministry of Transportation of Alberta (Canada) has awarded Carmacks, a subsidiary of Eurovia (VINCI Construction) based in Canada, the project to widen the Highway 40 expressway in the southern part of the city of Grande Prairie (450 km north-west of Edmonton).
Totalling €62.5 million (C$92 million), the work will begin in May 2021 and is set to last just over three years. It covers widening a 9.2 km section from a two-lane to a four-lane dual carriageway, and building a three-span steel bridge over the Wapiti River and a pedestrian bridge to allow residents to walk to O’Brien Provincial Park. Operations will be carried out both during the day and at night to minimise traffic disruptions.
Carmacks will implement a dedicated Environmental Construction Operations plan. For example, the plan includes protection of nesting birds before starting the earthworks, erosion control measures and turbidity monitoring of waterways during the construction phase.
