Montreal-based engineering firm SNC-Lavalin Inc and British firm Serco have been selected to build a major mass transit system in the Vancouver area, although it still requires approval from the B.C. government.
The C$1.7 billion bid is to build, partly finance, operate and maintain the project, which would link suburban Richmond, Vancouver International Airport and the city's downtown. The project is scheduled for completion by November, 2009, to be in place before the 2010 Winter Olympics. The SNC-Serco bid won over a proposal from a consortium that included Montreal-based Bombardier, which built Vancouver's elevated SkyTrain transit system.
