Carmacks, a subsidiary of Eurovia (VINCI Construction) in Canada, has been awarded a contract, worth €62.5m, to develop the Highway 40 in Grande Prairie, Canada.

The Alberta’s Ministry of Transportation awarded the contract for widening the Highway 40 expressway in the southern part of Grande Prairie.

The scope of work under the contract involves widening of a 9.2km section from a two-lane to a four-lane dual carriageway.

It also includes construction of a three-span steel bridge over the Wapiti River as well as a pedestrian bridge to provide walkway for residents to O’Brien Provincial Park.

Construction work on the project is scheduled to commence this month and last for three years.

Recently, Vinci Construction’s Australian subsidiary Seymour Whyte was awarded a contract worth €86m to renovate a major road axis in Australia.

The scope of work under the contract involves widening to two-by-two tracks, over 2km, of Pound Road West and Remington Drive and construction of a new viaduct to cross the Cranbourne railway line.

It also involves strengthening of another viaduct, restructuring of four intersections, construction of new shared bicycle-pedestrian lanes as well as the installation of guardrails.

Vinci stated that the project aims to reduce traffic congestion by connecting the South Gippsland Highway and Abbotts Road to provide access to the Dandenong South employment area while increasing productivity of the industrial zone.

Work on the project is scheduled to commence in October this year and last for two years.

In April this year, a consortium of VINCI Highways and Meridiam finalised the financial package for the D4 motorway public-private partnership (PPP) contract in the Czech Republic.
