Spanish contractor Ferrovial has won two contracts worth €200m from the Ontario Ministry of Transportation to maintain and operate 2,750km of roads in Ottawa and York in southeast Canada.
Both contracts will last seven years, with the job in Ottawa beginning in the second quarter of 2019 and the one in York starting in the third quarter.
In Ottawa, Ferrovial will maintain 1,844km of roads, including operating 70 snow plows. In York, the firm will carry out routine maintenance on a 900km road network, and operate 50 plows.
Ferrovial notes that by the end of 2019 it will be maintaining 4,600km of Ontario’s roads.
The company is planning the sale of UK subsidiary Amey following its loss of a court case against Birmingham council over a £2.7bn road contract in July 2018.
