Contract Awarded for Halifax Regional Municipality Paving Project
Drivers in the Glen Haven area of Halifax Regional Municipality will be travelling on smoother, stronger pavement this summer after the completion of a paving contract awarded by the province. A $916,275 contract to repave Indian Point Road from the intersection of Route 333 at Glen Haven for 4.5 kilometres to the end of the road and including Sunset Drive was awarded to Aberdeen Paving Ltd. “This project brings a much-needed improvement to a road that connects to Route 333, one of our busiest tourist routes,” said Angus MacIsaac, Minister of Transportation and Public Works. “The community will enjoy a better ride before the summer’s end.” The Department of Transportation and Public Works’ highways division manages more than 23,000 kilometres of roads in Nova Scotia. It maintains 4,100 bridges and operates seven provincial ferries. Staff provide services from district offices in Bridgewater, Bedford, Truro, and Sydney.
