July 15, 2016  By  Andrew Snook

July 15, 2016 – The findings for a feasibility study have recently been released on the possibility of twinning and tolling major sections of highways across Nova Scotia.

According to a recent report by the CBC, a $900,000 feasibility study was conducted by CBCL Limited, an engineering and environmental consulting firm hired by the province to review the potential of twinning and tolling eight sections of major Nova Scotia highways.

Although the province now has useful data to review, Nova Scotia’s Transportation Minister Geoff MacLellan stated that the government has no immediate plans for implementation of twinning the highways, which is estimated to cost about $2 billion.
