Chief Peguis Trail Extension (Winnipeg, MB)
The project is comprised of several features including a grade – separated intersection to ensure the safety of families in surrounding neighbourhoods; multi-use pathways to encourage walking and cycling; a pump station and dry pond to accommodate peak rainfall periods and to prevent flooding of the underpass; and sound attenuation and berms to reduce traffic noise.
The private sector contractor, DBF2 Limited Partnerships, is responsible for designing, building, financing and maintaining the trail over a 30 year period.
By drawing on the expertise and innovation of the private sector, the City of Winnipeg was able to open the Chief Peguis Trail on December 2, 2011, on budget and one year ahead of its expected completion date.
This P3 model will provide an estimated Value for Money savings of $31 million (17. 6%) compared to a traditional procurement.
