The tender was awarded to Cumberland Paving & Contracting Ltd. (part of Miller Group). Ditching and culvert work has already begun on the 13.7km Lower Maccan Road. It is scheduled to be double chip-sealed in its entirety this season, according to the province’s five-year Highway Improvement Plan.
“I am delighted that the Lower Maccan Road will be made safer for motorists,” said Baillie. “After years of frustration, it is good to finally have the work started.”
Project costs are expected to be approximately $1.75 million.
Baillie also says work is progressing on other transportation projects in Cumberland South including Trunk 2 between Southampton and West Brook (ditching and culvert work is complete and the first lift of pavement is already down), the Springhill Junction Bridge (mostly complete and open to the public) and the Hansen Bridge between Springhill Junction and Little Forks (project has gone to tender and is expected to close later this week).
