Providing a Safer SYD Road

The 188-km long SYD multi-user resource road provides the main access to over 27,000 square kilometres of oil, gas and forestry terrain in northeast BC. It connects to the end of the 15 km Clarke Lake Road, which joins the Alaska Highway just south of Fort Nelson.

The SYD Resource Road is open to the general public, although it is mainly used for servicing and supplying the oil and gas industry. Standards for road maintenance are set by the Ministry of Energy and Mines and carried out by Ledcor Highway Maintenance Ltd. The 15 km Clarke Lakeportion is under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Transportation.

The Ministry of Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resources and Partnerships BC, on behalf of the Province of BC, have delivered on a commitment to provide a safer SYD Road with year-round access from Fort Nelson. This unique public private partnership (“P3”) provides a creative solution within challenging terrain and, at the same time, transfers the financial and performance obligations to the private sector partner.
