P3 highways more costly, less transparent [NDP Party]

September 11th, 2019

Halifax-- The Public Accounts committee heard today that the government is keeping a request for proposals (RFP) secret while working with bidders to complete the process for getting bids on the section of Highway 104 that is set to be twinned.

This specific section of Highway 104 could cost as much as $120 million more through a P3 contract than with a traditional build. The benefit to the community in training and good paying jobs is also higher with a traditional build than in a public-private-partnership.

The McNeil Liberals are also signing P3 deals for the QEII hospital redevelopment and two health centres in Cape Breton.
