PINWARE, Nfld. — The provincial government has approved a total of $3 million to go towards a number of road improvement projects in several south coast communities over a two-year period.
The announcement was made by Labrador and Aboriginal Affairs Minister Ernest McLean, Works, Services and Transportation Minister Percy Barrett and Cartwright-L’Anse au Clair MHA Yvonne Jones.
“We are pleased to be able to provide this funding to ensure residents in southern Labrador are able to travel over quality road systems,” says McLean. “These projects will include road upgrading, drainage improvements through ditching and culvert replacement, resurfacing of roads with crushed gravel and the installation and replacement of guide rails.”
Funding for the project will come from the Labrador Transportation Initiative Fund.
The minister also announced that an assessment will be carried out to determine a possible access route between Pinsent’s Arm and Charlottetown.
