407 Extension To Cost $1 Billion
The premier is headed to Woodbridge on Thursday, all set to announce who will be doing the work on the 407 extension and how much it will cost.
However, SNC Lavalin beat him to it, revealing they and Cintra have been awarded the contract, worth around $1 billion.
This is for phase one of the 407 extension that will run 22 km EAST from Brock Road in Pickering to Harmony Road in Oshawa. There will also be a 10-km north-south highway east of Lake Ridge Road connecting the 407 to the 401.
SNC estimates designing and building the highways will take about 3 and a half years.
