Dessau-Soprin, one of Quebec’s largest consulting engineering companies, has won a project to do the feasibility studies and detailed engineering of a $140-million road in Trinidad.
The highway will connect Princes Town to Mayaro, two towns in the southern half of the island of Trinidad. The approximately 40 kilometres long highway will traverse rolling terrain, running in an east-west direction.
Dessau-Soprin’s work will involve comprehensive environmental, economic, traffic and terrain studies, preliminary and final designs, as well as plans and specifications.
A number of local Trinidad firms will work closely with the Montreal firm on the highway project.
Dessau-Soprin already has done extensive work in the Caribbean. For example, it worked on a toll highway in Jamaica, and was involved in marine works, water supply and wastewater, and hydroelectric projects in Dominica, the Dominican Republic, Grenada and Haiti.
