Government releases reports on Labrador Transportation
Trevor Taylor, Minister of Transportation and Works, today announced the release of three Labrador transportation reports on a Southern Labrador Regional Airport, marine base freight rates and passenger fares, and marine services.
These reports are now accessible to the general public on Transportation and Works web site: www.gov.nl.ca/tw/publications.stm. The public is free to post a response to these reports, by e-mailing the department at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The reports were recently made available to the Ministerís Advisory Committee on Labrador Transportation, as part of governmentís consultation process. The minister noted that government has not made any decisions regarding the recommendations in these reports.
The reports will eventually feed into a greater Labrador Transportation Strategy.
On February 27, in Happy Valley-Goose Bay, Minister Taylor announced the formation of the Ministerís Advisory Committee on Labrador Transportation - a nine-member committee established to make recommendations on how best to address future Labrador transportation needs.
