Shaping the future of transportation by combining traditional engineering with innovative digital technologies to deliver sustainable solutions.
Transportation is the cornerstone of modern society, and we are increasingly demanding more sustainable solutions. At SNC-Lavalin, we believe in building efficient, reliable and sustainable local transportation solutions that stand the test of time as our communities change.
Saskatchewan Ministry of Highways is experiencing increased usage of major roads as the region experiences strong population growth. The Saskatchewan Ministry of Highways has identified significant traffic delays and safety issues with a provincial highway traffic entering the city and destined to other highway routes exiting the city. In situations like this, it is important to reimagine, reinvent, and re-energize infrastructure to meet the needs of both today and tomorrow. We will achieve this by completing a functional planning study that considers population growth and traffic demands to the year 2063. The planning study will provide a reference concept for future procurement and will include recommendations for the alignment of a new freeway along a predetermined general location corridor, interchange configurations, right-of-way plans, environmental mitigation opportunities and a detailed cost estimate. The proposed Freeway includes approximately 55- kilometres of fully controlled access to a 4-lane (minimum) to 10-lane divided highway with approximately 17 interchanges, one major crossing over the South Saskatchewan River, multiple flyovers and five railway overpasses.
The use of digital tools is incredibly important when looking this far into the future. They help make better design decisions and drive efficiencies in the local communities responsible for delivering these important services. The development of integrated transport solutions can maximize the value to the community by improving the Saskatchewan Ministry of Highway’s investment in infrastructure planning, operations, maintenance, and asset longevity.
