South Fraser Perimeter Road

Surrey-Delta, British Columbia, Canada


Dragados was awarded with the South Fraser Perimeter Ring Road Project by the British Columbia Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure in 2010, as a member of a Design-Build Joint Venture for the construction of a 40 km, 4-lane highway along the south side of Fraser River with an alternative financing and procurement (AFP) model. The South Fraser Perimeter Ring Road Project is a key component of British Columbia Gateway Program, improving roads and bridges for efficient mobilization of people, goods and transit in Metro Vancouver. The new highway created a corridor from Deltaport Way in southwest Delta to Highway 15 in Surrey, with connections to the highway network and to the Golden Ears Bridge.
This Project includes the largest environmental and agricultural mitigation and enhancement plan for a highway construction project of this size in the province of British Columbia. The South Fraser Perimeter Road Project has received an Award of Merit for Project Financing at the presentation of the National Awards for Innovation and Excellence by the Canadian Council for Public-Private Partnerships (CCPPP). The engineering design innovations implemented in this Project was also recognized by the Association of Consulting Engineering Companies of British Columbia and received Awards of Excellence for two consecutive years (2012 and 2013).
Dragados and its Joint-Venture partners were able to complete the project six (6) months ahead of the Client’s planned schedule and the new road was opened to commuters in December 2013.
This Project has taken a significant part in improving Metro Vancouver’s major road network. It is benefiting commuters, the trucking industry and tourists by connecting primary gateway facilities and enabling access to US-Canada borders, the Delta Ferry Terminal and the rest of the transportation network in the province.
