Bryant’s Cove, Newfoundland and Labrador, November 17, 2020—The health and well-being of Canadians are the top priorities of the governments of Canada and Newfoundland and Labrador. But the COVID-19 pandemic has affected more than our personal health; it is having a profound effect on the economy.
That is why governments have been taking decisive action to support families, businesses and communities, and continue to look ahead to see what more can be done.
Today, Ken McDonald, Member of Parliament for Avalon, on behalf of the Honourable Catherine McKenna, Minister of Infrastructure and Communities; Pam Parsons, MHA for Harbour Grace – Port de Grave, on behalf of the Honourable Derrick Bragg, Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure; and Her Worship Gloria Best, Mayor of Bryant’s Cove, announced funding to make Church Road safer for motorists.
The project involves slope stabilization and road rehabilitation on Church Road in the town of Bryant’s Cove. Improved storm drainage, installation of retaining wall, and relocation of the road will ensure reliable and safe driving conditions are maintained in this area for years to come.
The Government of Canada is investing more than $525,000 through the Green Infrastructure Stream of the Investing in Canada infrastructure program. The Government of Newfoundland and Labrador is providing over $656,000 towards this project, while the Town of Bryant’s Cove is contributing more than $266,000.
