Southeast ring road takes shape in Calgary
A heavy equipment operator is busy working on a portion of the Southeast Ring Road in Calgary, Alberta.
The public-private partnership involves building 25 kilometres of six-lane road, including nine interchanges, one road flyover, two rail flyovers and 27 bridge structures.
Chinook Roads Partnership was awarded the $769 million, 30-year contract.
The partnership is a 50/50 joint venture between SNC-Lavalin and Acciona.
The ring road is the largest infrastructure project in the province's history. The project is behind schedule and was slated to open Oct. 1.
The contractor is facing a $70,000 a day penalty for being late.
