The process to acquire the land around the Regina Bypass and Global Transportation Hub (GTH) is still costing the Saskatchewan government.
It was revealed Wednesday in the information provided by the ministry of highways that there are a number of lawsuits still outstanding.
The province expropriated a number of parcels of lands with multiple owners in order to get the two developments off the ground.
With the Regina Bypass, roughly 20 landowners filed claims with the court, although most will be settled through mediation or arbitration.
As of September 2017, the amount paid in settlements totals $79.6 million.
That does not include the West Regina Bypass section where five lawsuits remain active.
For the GTH, more than 1178.40 parcels of land were acquired which cost the government $24 million in settlements.
“We will continue discussions with landowners to try and arrive at a settlement that achieves that goal of fair market value for the landowner,” Doug Wakabayashi with the ministry of highways explained.
It could be several months before a final figure is known for the two developments. Landowners have two years after expropriation to make a claim and that window closed for most of them in May.
