RIVERVIEW, N.B. — Town council gave approval last night to the first land purchase for the east-west corridor, on the Pine Glen Road at a purchase price of $130,000.

“The property was up for sale and it is located right in the middle of where the east-west connector will run, so we decided to go for it,” says mayor, Bruce Fitch.

Fitch says not all the property involved in the sale is needed for the route, so the town will be able to sell off some of the remaining land to interested buyers.

Currently, Key Surveys and Engineering Ltd. of Moncton is surveying all the land needed for the first phase of the east-west connector, which would run between the new Petitcodiac River crossing and Findlay Boulevard. Key was awarded the contract for $58,100.
