Government Announces Provincial Roads Plan #nltraffic

Minister of Transportation and Works, Al Hawkins, released the Provincial Government’s Five-Year Provincial Roads Plan, 2017 edition and the full list of road tenders for 2017-18.

The plan uses an evidence-based approach to build, renew and maintain transportation infrastructure and takes full advantage of Newfoundland and Labrador’s short construction season while allowing for more competitive bidding.

The roads plan will be updated annually with a progress report on projects from the previous years. Projects will be added with each update and will include a complete list for that specific fiscal year.

This year, $77.2 million has been allocated for the Provincial Roads Program.
