Stoney Trail

Capita Symonds’ Infrastructure PFI/PPP team has been appointed to act for the funders to the concessionaire - The Chinook Roads Partnership – for the CAD450m South East Stoney Trail (SEST) road project in Calgary, Canada.

Over the next four years Capita Symonds will provide technical advice on the design, construction and entry into service of the project which involves 25 km of new dual three lane highway. Capita Symonds’ role will also include overseeing the operation and life cycle maintenance, over the next 30 years, of the new highway as well as 12 km of the existing Deerfoot Trail Highway.

Construction on the project began in April 2010 with completion expected late 2013.
