Two Additional T�Railway Structures Re-Opened

Two additional structures along the T�Railway Provincial Park are now re-opened, the Honourable Charlene Johnson, Minister of Environment and Conservation, announced today.

Howley River and Robaires Brook have been determined safe, following a further engineering assessment, and are re-opened to the public.

"A further assessment has now confirmed that these structures are safe for public use," said Minister Johnson. "We will continue to provide updates on the various T�Railway structures as the engineering assessments are completed."

This brings to 80 the number of T�Railway structures that have been re-opened as the result of engineering assessments of the structures that were initiated following receipt of a report from Transport Canada last week.
