A joint venture between Aecon (40%) and Traylor Bros Inc. (60%) has been awarded a $267M contract by Metro Vancouver (Greater Vancouver Water District) for the Second Narrows Water Supply Tunnel project in British Columbia.
The scope of work includes construction of two shafts, one on each side of Burrard Inlet, connected by a 1,100m long, 5m diameter tunnel. The north entry shaft will be in North Vancouver and approximately 60m deep, while the south exit shaft will be in Burnaby and approximately 110m deep.
Work will commence in November 2018 and the project is expected to reach completion by the end of 2023.
“We look forward to successfully and safely delivering this complex, multi-year project for Metro Vancouver to ensure the continued, reliable delivery of clean drinking water to member jurisdictions,” said Jean-Louis Servranckx, President and Chief Executive Officer, Aecon Group Inc. “This award further advances Aecon’s recognized reputation as a partner-of-choice for tunnelling projects, while expanding our solid presence in Western Canada working on large-scale critical infrastructure projects.”
