November 13, 2013, Quebec City, Que. – The Minister of
Transportation, Sylvain Gaudreault, announced that anti-corruption measures put
in place by the Quebec Government have saved the province $240 million on road
construction this year.

The province introduced tougher rules for road construction
contracts in the wake of corruption and collusion found in the awarding and
management of road construction and maintenance contracts.

Gaudreault also announced a Bill coming forward that would
create the Quebec Transportation Agency, which will develop internal expertise
for strengthened monitoring of contracts for road construction and maintenance
in the province. The government has already hired over 100 engineers this
year in order to help build the Ministry’s internal expertise.

Advertisment

The Bill is expected to be presented in the next few weeks.
