OLD PERLICAN, NFLD
The federal government will spend $5 million repairing and improving a number of small craft harbours in Newfoundland and Labrador.
Seven harbours will receive work including Southern Harbour, Harbour Grace, Holyrood, Jerseyside, Long Cove, Old Perlican and St. Bride’s. Also, projects will be completed this year at the harbours of Bay de Verde, Foxtrap and Arnold’s Cove.
The lastest spending announcement is in addition to the $2.5 million being spend to improve harbours in Trepassey, Portugal Cove South, Fermeuse and Renews
These projects will be implemented by Fisheries and Oceans Canada, as part of its Small Craft Harbours Program, in co-operation with the local harbour authorities that manage and operate the facilities
The projects include:
• Southern Harbour - Harbour development consisting of armourstone breakwater construction, wharf construction, and upland property development. Upon completion, an old deteriorated wharf within the harbour will be removed.
• Harbour Grace - A project to extend electrical service to a recently constructed finger pier wharf. Project completion is expected this year.
