by James A. Feltham, Public Works Canada, Canada,



Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Major Development and Transportation Projects: Public/Private Partnerships

Abstract: This major project has challenged the Canadian Government to produce innovative requirements in environmental planning, financing and security, and facility performance. It requires a commitment from industry for a thirty-five (35) year period to design, construct, finance and operate a fixed crossing of the Northumberland Strait. Intensive industry-government consultation has enabled the preparation of a project which recognizes mutual objectives in an effective manner. This paper outlines the concerns identified and the approaches used for this project.
