Business Case

On July 31, 2012, the Government of Canada announced the selection of a consortium led by PricewaterhouseCoopers for the development of the business case for the project.

The business case includes:

  • an in-depth analysis of the preferred method for procurement and construction of the bridge;
  • the development of traffic and revenue forecasts; and
  • preliminary engineering work to identify possible options and their costs.

This information has allowed the federal government to make an informed decision on the procurement model for the new bridge.
