Dec. 30, 2014, Halifax – The Government of Nova Scotia has
announced that it will reduce government spending in 2015, including for road
and bridge work.

 

A report from the CBC, the government has reduced its
overall spending by eight per cent overall for the upcoming year.

Advertisment

 

In 2014, Nova Scotia committed $235 million to highway
infrastructure in the province. Because of the cut, that number will drop to
$220 million for 2015.

 

It is expected, however, that part of that money will be set
aside to twin a controversial section of Highway 103, just outside of Halifax.
But the province has suggested that they may look at other traffic calming
measures to address the problem.
