Description:

Cycling Nova Scotia seeks consultancy services for a functional core active transportation (AT) network design drawings and cost estimates. The aim is to assess the feasibility and identify preferred design options for the creation of an All Ages and Abilities (AAA) walking and cycling facility that combines the AT spine planned by CNS with the planned trails network within Wagmatcook First Nation.

The project encompasses the two following key components:

  • Design and estimate engineering costs for multi-use path and crossing facilities alongside the Trans-Canada Highway (HWY 105). See Document.
  • Design and estimate engineering costs for the Wagmatcook First Nation trail networks. See Document.

This initiative will involve thorough route condition evaluation, active engagement with the public and community partners about facility type design considerations, detailed designs (90% drawings) of the preferred facility types, and engineering cost estimations for each network section.
