Saskatchewan tenders insurance advisory role for Regina bypass PPP

The government of Saskatchewan (Canada) has issued a request for proposal (RFP) for an insurance adviser to work on the Regina Bypass PPP project.

The Province has already executed works on general location studies, functional design studies, and environmental reviews for the route. SaskBuilds Corporation, a treasury board crown corporation, seeks an advisor to provide comprehensive insurance advisory and support services to the project team.

Firms involved in the project so far include Associated Engineering, Tetra Tech, MMM Group and AMEC Environment & Infrastructure. Associated Engineering has been retained as the owner's engineer.

The project has an estimated cost of CAD$1.2 billion. In mid May the Province launched a Request for Qualification (RFQ) for highway developers.

The Regina Bypass Project is located in the immediate vicinity of Regina, the capital of the Province of Saskatchewan. Regina has a population of approximately 200,000 and has experienced significant population growth in recent years, a trend which is expected to continue in the immediate term.

The Project consists of a free flow highway corridor through the Regina Region and includes approximately 58 km of 4-lane highway (including 40 km of new 4-lane highway) and service roads along with a number of interchanges and intersections.

It will begin on Highway 11 northwest of Regina and run south to Highway 1, then wrap about 5 kilometres south of the city to rejoin Highway 1 on the east. The project includes overpasses at the Pilot Butte Access Road, Highway 48 at White City and Highway 46 at Balgonie.

Insurance advisors must submit their proposals on or before 6 June 2014.
