Surrey council approves $7.3 million contract for street paving projects

City council awarded Lafarge Canada Inc. $7,326,667.95 for 15 road projects in North Surrey and one in South Surrey

Surrey city council on Monday awarded Lafarge Canada Inc. $7,326,667.95 for major road network arterial road paving mostly in the north end of the city.

The work is expected to begin in July and be completed by next spring.

Of the 16 projects, only one is in South Surrey – arterial paving on 152nd Street, from the 3100-block to the 3000 block.

Scott Neuman, Surrey’s general manager of engineering, said the contract permits construction from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Friday, abiding by the Surrey Noise Control Bylaw.

“The contract does not include an option for contractors to work 24 hours a day, seven days a week, as based on input from contractors, there were no financial savings or time savings expected,” Neuman notes in his report.
