The provincial government’s multi-year capital works projects for the Carbonear-Harbour Grace district were announced today (Sept. 5).
The towns of Carbonear and Victoria were two of 22 municipalities that applied for multi-year funding earlier this year.
Some $2.2 million was approved for infrastructure upgrades to the region, including a water and sewer upgrade to LeMarchant Road in Carbonear at a cost of $1.3 million. As well, a lift station on Pike’s Lane will be upgraded at a cost of some $326,000.
Victoria will see $429,000 go towards water and sewer upgrades and road improvements on Gully Path Road, as well as $142,000 for a water main extension on Gulf Avenue.
Carbonear will share the cost with the provincial government with a share of 80/20, while Victoria will split it 90/10.
