World-leading construction services and infrastructure development company EllisDon announced that they have formed a partnership to advance the development of high-speed rail connecting Edmonton in Red Deer and Calgary in Alberta in Canada. EllisDon and its team took the initiative to propose the project within the Government of Alberta’s Unsolicited Proposal Guidelines and Framework. Prairie Link has secured a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) from Alberta Transportation laying the foundation for cooperatively advancing project development. With an estimated capital cost of $9 billion, the project will be among the largest and most defining nation-building transportation projects in Alberta's history. The Prairie Link team has already commenced Indigenous engagement and established an advisory committee to guide project development.
