Aconex Paves the Way to Regina

Project name: Regina Bypass Partners Regina Bypass | Industry: Road & RailProject size: US$1.5 billion | Location: Regina, Canada

The Regina Bypass is the largest public-private partnership (P3) infrastructure project in the history of Canada’s Saskatchewan Province. The completed asset will route traffic around the province’s capital city to improve safety, alleviate traffic in the city and stimulate growth throughout the region. When completed, the Regina Bypass will consist of 60 kilometers of a new and upgraded four-lane highway, 12 new overpasses, and 55 kilometers of new service roads. By using the P3 model, the government of Saskatchewan will save taxpayers $380 million, or more than 16% of the total project value, compared to a traditional approach. The P3 will operate and maintain the asset for 30 years.
