VINCI Highways and its partners deliver the new Pilot Butte interchange more than a year ahead of schedule.

VINCI Highways, in charge of the construction and operation of the Regina bypass until 2049 as part of a public-private partnership, is successfully completing a new stage of the project's phase 2. Teams recently commissioned the Pilot Butte interchange 20 months ahead of schedule. This is the first reverse diamond interchange built in the province of Saskatchewan and the second in Canada. Early commissioning welcomed by the authorities: "We are pleased to provide Pilot Butte residents with new, safer access sooner than expected," said Saskatchewan Highways and Infrastructure Minister David Marit. Carried out in synergy with VINCI Construction Terrassement and Eurovia, and in partnership with North American builders Graham and Parsons, construction of phase 2 is expected to last another 18 months. To date, the project has worked a total of nearly 4 million hours without major accidents.

Commissioned in October 2017, Phase 1 of the Regina bypass has already demonstrated its positive impact on road traffic and has significantly improved safety on the Trans-Canada Highway east of the province's capital.

The Regina bypass is Saskatchewan's largest infrastructure project, and the first of this magnitude to be carried out in a public-private partnership.
