September 8, 2014, St. John’s, Nfld. – Paving of the
Trans-Labrador highway between Happy Valley – Goose Bay and Churchill Falls
should be completed by this winter if local weather continues to cooperate.  

 

According to a report from the Daily Business Buzz,
Transportation and Works Minister Nick McGrath is confident that the remaining
60km stretch of highway can get paved before winter following a series of
delays on the project.

The $37 million dollar project was supposed to see paving
done by the end of August, but a series of complications meant that paving did
not start until around that date. Complications included worker certification,
worker accommodations, equipment mobilization and the need to test the asphalt
mix.

 

The project, which is being done by Pavex, also includes an
80km stretch of paving of the highway from Happy Valley-Goose bay and
Cartwright Junction, which is scheduled for 2015.
