Pilot project announced for night-time road construction

A pilot project is to be carried out to test the effectiveness of night-time road construction on a stretch of the Trans-Canada Highway in Newfoundland & Labrador.

A CA$2.5m contract has been awarded to Carbonear-based Concord Paving for a paving project on a stretch of the highway Kenmount Road to Salmonier Line. The aim of carrying out the work at night is to help reduce slowdowns during busy periods of the day.

Newfoundland & Labrador Department of Transportation & Works will study the project to determine the cost-effectiveness, value and impact on motorists of conducting road work at night. It will prepare a report at the end of the project, which will consider such factors as safety, productivity, costs and impacts on motorists and residents.

“As part of our efforts to be more innovative and improve the way we do business, we will test the effectiveness and value of night-time construction, considering such factors as safety for construction crews and motorists, contractor productivity, construction costs and impacts on traffic flow,” said minister of transportation and works Al Hawkins. “Ultimately, our goal is to manage road improvement projects for the betterment of the travelling public.”
