The City of Winnipeg’s Southwest Rapid Transit Corridor project in Manitoba is a dedicated high-speed roadway for buses, integrating all existing bus routes in Southwest Winnipeg and bypassing several areas of traffic congestion on the major Pembina Highway. The project, owned by the City of Winnipeg, is anticipated to reduce transit times and accommodate the travel needs of a 40% population growth expected in the southwest area of Winnipeg by 2030.
RECo is working with PCL Construction to provide the design and supply of Reinforced Earth® (R/E) retaining walls and bridge abutments consisting of more than 10,000 sq m of TerraClass™ precast concrete panels for the second stage of the Transitway project. These R/E structures address several MSE requirements at Bishop Grandin Blvd., Letellier rail, McGillivray Blvd., and the northernmost point of the project where the corridor underpasses Pembina Highway.
Project construction on Stage 2 of the Southwest Rapid Transit Corridor began in August 2016 and is expected to be completed in late 2019. By 2020, the Southwest Transitway will operate from Downtown to the neighbourhoods of Southwest Winnipeg, including the University of Manitoba.
