FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Macro Enterprises has signed a new contract for work on the Trans Mountain Pipeline.

On Wednesday, the company announced the new contract for specific segments of the Spread 5B of the expansion. The Spread 5B segments awarded to Macro involve a combination of clearing, grading and pipeline construction along the Coquihalla-Hope corridor in British Columbia.

In December, Macro announced that Trans Mountain had terminated the contract with Marco’s partner Spiecapag Canada Corp. That contract covered Spread 5B of the expansion. Macro said the contract was cancelled due to ongoing challenges between the joint venture and Trans Mountain.

Macro expects the new contract will continue until a replacement general construction contractor is chosen and a new replacement contract is entered into. They expect that to happen within the next three months. The deal has an initial estimated value that exceeds $50 million.
