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.

    all this is fine and dandy but I mean no $ at all for roads?? I'm sure i'm not the only one who thinks this, the roads are really not fit around any of CBN something soon has to be done because it's already too far gone. Throwin gravel and asphalt into huge potholes everywhere just isn't gonna cut it and if we have the winter like we did last year it's just as well to result back to dirt roads.

    The compass is always so eager to announce news which is suppose to be positive for our liberal member. Where is the pavement for the old track in Victoria that former mayors Clarke and Burke said Mr. Clause would get? $2.2 mill, sure Carbonear had that several years in a row under the recently departed member. $2.2 mill for 3 years and we are suppose to be happy. I wonder what freshwater and Bristols Hope will get as they are completely funded by the gov, and don't pay anything towards road work? Compass please investigate
