ST. JOHN’S, Nfld. — Newfoundland Minister of Works, Services and Transportation, Percy Barrett, made a statement to the House of Assembly yesterday, addressing the state of the province’s highways.

Barrett boasted that the $122 million earmarked for the province’s roads this year is one of the highest allocations since confederation.

In his announcement, Barrett assured the House that tenders were being called for many road projects to be completed this year.

“While not all needs can be addressed in one year, I believe the people of Newfoundland and Labrador will be pleased with the roads program we have prepared for this year, with its extra emphasis on paving gravel roads,” says Barrett.
