Three pre-qualified teams have been selected by the province of B.C. to bid on the design and construction of the new toll-free Pattullo Bridge crossing between Surrey and New Westminster.

“The existing Pattullo Bridge is nearing the end of its useful life,” said Claire Trevena, B.C.’s Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure in a media release. “The selection of the three teams gets us closer to breaking ground on this project that will improve safety and reliability for residents, commercial vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians.”

The three bidding teams are:

  • Fraser Community Connectors:
  • Flatiron / Dragados / Carlson Pattullo JV:
    • Respondent: Flatiron / Dragados / Carlson Pattullo JV (a joint venture of Flatiron Constructors Canada Limited, Dragados Canada Inc. and Carlson Construction Group, Inc.), ACS Infrastructure Canada Inc., Hochtieff PPP Solutions North America, LLC and COWI North America, Ltd.
    • Design-build contractor: Flatiron / Dragados / Carlson Pattullo JV (a joint venture of Flatiron Constructors Canada Limited, Dragados Canada Inc. and Carlson Construction Group, Inc.)
    • Long-span bridge design contractor: COWI North America, Ltd.
  • Fraser Crossing Partners

The $1.377-billion Pattullo Bridge Replacement Project will create a new four-lane crossing that will replace the existing Pattullo Bridge and will have wider lanes and better connections to road networks on either side of the bridge. It is expected to open in 2023.

The new bridge also features dedicated pedestrian and cyclist lanes separated from traffic by a barrier on both sides of the bridge.

The project will be funded and owned by the Province of British Columbia. It will be delivered on behalf of the Province by the Transportation Investment Corporation (TI Corp.). TI Corp., a Crown corporation with the legislative authority to complete major transportation projects.

    What really amuses me is the fact an infrastructure like this is being funded by the province only. The federal government should at least fund 1/3 if not half the project.
    The federal government should be paying for Canadian infrastructure because it is a national investment no matter what province it is. The involvement will reduce provincial financial burden, create jobs and have a better oversight for budgets and proper know how. Unlike the port Mann bridge where it took years for feasibility studies, environmental studies etc to only have a bridge designed for a tropical country when you had ice falling on vehicles. I understand we need professionals to undertake such projects but there is an urgent need to have a couple of people who have common sense instead of just engineers and architects.
    The greater Vancouver area is taxed to the hilt with carbon tax but you can’t travel 200 meters without stopping because one car has to turn blocking 20 cars behind them
    The MPs and MLAs need to look into getting federal funds to pay their portion towards the betterment of Canadian provinces
