George Massey Replacement Project

Victoria WWT Plant.jpg

Core Area Wastewater Treatment Project

On September 20, 2013, Premier Clark announced that construction on a new bridge to replace the existing George Massey Tunnel will begin in 2017. On December 16, 2015, British Columbia Transportation Minister Todd Stone announced detailed plans to spend $3.5 billion on a bridge, highway widening and interchange improvements to replace the tunnel. In July 2016 the BC Environmental Assessment Office (EAO) started an environmental assessment of the project and on February 9, 2017 the replacement received environment approval from the B.C. Ministry of Environment. Preliminary work went out for tender in January 2017 to start the process of improving ground conditions for the future widening of the project area.


In early 2016 the procurement of a Public Private Partnership commenced, and Tim Stanley led the Design Team for one of the Proponents. This Proponent Team submitted a highly competitive proposal and was positioned to be the Preferred Proponent however with the election of a new provincial government in 2017, the NDP Premier John Horgan scrapped the project in favour of a solution with more research and consultation with the Metro Vancouver mayors. The potential Preferred Proponent Team was reported to be $900 million below the project budget.

The $775 million Wastewater Treatment Project will provide tertiary treatment for wastewater from the core area municipalities of Victoria, Esquimalt, Saanich, Oak Bay, View Royal, Langford and Colwood, and the Esquimalt and Songhees Nations. The Wastewater Treatment Project is being built to meet the provincial and federal regulations for treatment by December 31, 2020. The Project consists of three main components:

McLoughlin Point Wastewater Treatment Plant located at McLoughlin Point in Esquimalt, the treatment plant will provide tertiary treatment to the core area's wastewater.

Residuals Treatment Facility located at the Hartland Landfill  receives residual solids from the wastewater treatment plant by a forcemain. The facility will be turn the residual solids into what are known as Class A biosolids. These biosolids are a high-quality by-product treated such that it is safe for further use.

Conveyance System refers to the 'pumps and pipes' of the Wastewater Treatment Project. This system will carry wastewater from across the core area to the treatment plant, and residual solids to the Residuals Treatment Facility at Hartland Landfill.

Tim Stanley serves as a Director on the Project Board that oversees the implementation of the project.


Pattullo Bridge Replacement Project

Gordie Howe Bridge.jpg

Gordie Howe International Bridge Project

The existing Pattullo Bridge in British Columbia is a key connection between the communities of Surrey and New Westminster over the Fraser River. This key piece of infrastructure is at its end of life and is being replaced. The new $1.377 billion four-lane toll-free bridge will provide important improvements for everyone using the bridge, including people who are driving, cycling or walking including:

  • A safer crossing for all bridge users with modern, wider lanes, separated by a centre median barrier

  • Dedicated walking and cycling lanes, separated from traffic by a barrier on both sides of the bridge

  • Better connections to, from and near the bridge

The new bridge is scheduled to open in 2024. The existing bridge will remain in use until the new bridge is open to traffic. Once the new bridge is open, the existing bridge will be removed.


Tim Stanley is a member of the three person Due Diligence Committee (DDC)advising the Transportation Investment Corporation (a BC Provincial Crown Corporation) during the design and construction of this bridge project. The DDC monitors the ongoing progress of the project and provides critical advice on Budget, Schedule, Risk and Commercial management. The Transportation Investment Corporation is responsible for delivering and overseeing this large complex project.

The $6.4 billion Gordie  billion Gordie Howe International Bridge in Windsor, Ontario is a 6-lane cable-stayed bridge, 2.5 kilometres/ 1.5 miles in length with a clear span of 853 metres/0.53 miles. The bridge also incorporates a multi-use path for pedestrians and cyclists that is 3.6 metres/ 11.8 feet wide. The project includes new large Canadian Port of Entry and US Port of Entry facilities as well as connection to major highways on both sides of the border.


Once complete, the Gordie Howe International Bridge project will facilitate the movement of people, goods and services by ensuring there is sufficient border crossing capacity to handle growth in cross-border trade and traffic, by providing a much-needed crossing alternative. 


Tim Stanley is a member of the 3 person Dispute Resolution Board (DRB). Under the Project Agreement there is a dispute process that allows either party to the Agreement to refer a dispute to the DRB for review and decision. The DRB review involves assessment of written submissions from the parties and in some cases hearings. 


Fraser River Tunnel Project

 In Vancouver BC, after the cancelation of the Massey Tunnel Replacement Project (a new bridge plus highway upgrades)  in 2017, it was recognized that the existing tunnel required replacement and a new process to select the type of infrastructure was launched. The outcome of the study was the selection of a new larger immersed tunnel to replace the existing tunnel.


The proposed $4 billion Fraser River Tunnel Project includes a new, eight-lane immersed tube tunnel (780m) that will replace the existing George Massey Tunnel on Highway 99. The new tunnel will have three vehicle lanes and a dedicated transit lane in each direction, with a separated active transportation corridor for cyclists and pedestrians.  

The project also includes:

  • Replacing the Deas Slough Bridge

  • Removing the existing tunnel once the new immersed tube tunnel is in operation


Tim Stanley undertook a due diligence review of the Business Case for the new project which included a comparison of alternate types of infrastructure and an analysis of possible delivery approaches. Following this review Tim is providing procurement due diligence review services as well as broader project due diligence services.
