Ottawa invests $12.3 million in Newfoundland small craft harbours
The federal government will invest $12.3 million in repair, maintenance and construction projects at small craft harbours in Newfoundland and Labrador, it was recently announced.
Major projects being funded under the program include: wharf construction at Rencontre East; wharf reconstruction at Blue Cove and Pinsent’s Arm; completion of a wharf reconstruction project at Little Port; wharf reconstruction at Long Cove, to be carried out over three years and breakwater extension at Musgrave Harbour.
Other projects slated to receive funding include wharf repairs at Old Perlican and Sunnyside; shore protection and reconstruction work at St. David’s (Crabbe’s River); construction of a slipway at South East Bight and reconstruction of a slipway at Belleoram, as well as repairs to the slipway at Black Duck Brook; wharf deck repairs at Fleur de Lys, where the electrical system will also be upgraded; completion of a wharf construction project at Bonavista, and completion of wharf extension and harbour protection at Eddies Cove East; plans and specifications for future harbour development at Fermeuse; and dredging at Dildo.
Minor repair and maintenance projects, technical studies and planning projects will also be carried out at fishing harbours throughout the province.
This announcement is part of a $51.7 million investment in small craft harbours across the country in 2012-13. Major repair, maintenance and construction projects will be undertaken at approximately 95 small craft harbours across the country.
Additionally, work will continue at harbours that were damaged by Hurricane Igor and storms in 2010. In 2011, the Federal Government invested $71.6 million over three years towards the repair of harbours affected by Hurricane Igor in Newfoundland, the Manitoba “Weather Bomb,” and the 2010 December storms in Atlantic Canada and Quebec.
