The province is moving forward on the construction of the Southwest Calgary Ring Road using a Design-Build-Finance-Operate or Public Private Partnership (P3) procurement process. To date, the province has saved about $2 billion by using P3 contracts to build a total of five segments of the Edmonton and Calgary Ring Roads. There are still many steps before we see shovels in the ground.
