Improvement Momentum Continues
The Williams Government has issued another tender for
road work as it continues to roll out the 2009-10 Provincial Roads
Improvement Program, valued at $70.7 million.
Projects have been announced in the districts of
Conception Bay East-Bell Island and Cape St. Francis.
"Once again this year, our government is making
significant investments to ensure the province�s roads remain safe and
reliable," said the Honourable Trevor Taylor, Minister of Transportation
and Works. "That�s why as part of Budget 2009, we are committed to
investing over $300 million in transportation infrastructure."
In Conception Bay East-Bell Island, tenders have been
issued to upgrade and repave sections of Bennett�s Road, Beachy Cove
Road at Tucker�s Hill and Portugal Cove Road; and in the district of
Cape St. Francis the existing culverts at Coaker�s River on Old Marine
Drive will be replaced.
