ST. JOHN’S, Nfld. — The Newfoundland Department of Works, Services and Transportation has approved more than $1.5 million in funding for Northern Peninsula roads.

The money has been earmarked for paving a section of Route 430, replacing a culvert at Eddies Cove East, paving the main road at Anchor Point, paving the approach to a new ramp at the St. Barbe Wharf and resurfacing sections of road in Port aux Choix and Port Saunders.

"The road improvement projects we have planned for this year demonstrate our commitment to building upon and improving the transportation infrastructure of Newfoundland and Labrador," says Transportation Minister, Percy Barrett. "We recognized the need for road repairs in this area and are anxious to get work started."

Work on the above projects is expected to get under way immediately.
