The new deadline is March 27, 2015, which is the result of Premier Christy Clark directing the crown corporation to change the contract terms to allow unions to organize the construction site.

The preparation work includes the excavation and disposal of approximately 3 million cubic meters, quarry development – including riprap production of about 100,000 cubic meters, building 7.25 kilometres of access road, as well as the clearing and grubbing of 115 hectares.

Previous bid deadlines were December 10, 2015, January 5, 2015 and March 20, 2015.

A solicitation notice can be found on the BC Bid site.
