Provincial Government Preparing for Road Construction Season
The Department of Transportation and Works has released the list of provincial road projects planned for 2020-21 to allow contractors to be prepared to start work when the road construction season begins. All contractors will be required to follow the guidelines to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Work will only proceed where contractors are able to demonstrate they are able to provide safe working environments for crews. Tenders for 11 projects have already been issued and 10 more tenders are planned to be issued in the coming days. The updated lists for the remaining four years of the Five-Year Provincial Roads Plan will be announced at a later date.
