By Andy Bateman
September 24, 2009 – A
few sentences in the first budget by Nova Scotia’s NDP government may give some cheer to provincial roadbuilders.
to N.S. Finance Minister Graham Steele, “We plan to spend $796 million to build and repair roads
and bridges, schools and health-care facilities, housing and more. The province
is scheduled to spend $325 million on highway construction and major
maintenance projects this year, surpassing last year's amount by over $140
million and making this year's highway improvement plan one of the largest in
the province's history”.
