The Greater Vancouver Transportation Authority, Translink, has invited requests for qualification to design, build, finance, operate, maintain and rehabilitate the Golden Ears Bridge and its associated roads. Focal point of the US$460 million scheme is a six-lane, 1km crossing of the Frasier River which will include navigational channels of 170m and 125m. The deadline for submissions is 19 November.
The objective is then to shortlist three proponents who will be issued with the request for proposals in January 2005. An honorarium will be available to the two unsuccessful proponents.
