I'm a broken man on a Halifax pier:
The Town of St. Andrews wharf will soon undergo important improvements and upgrades, thanks to support from both the federal and provincial governments.
John Williamson, Member of Parliament for New Brunswick Southwest, on behalf of the Honourable Rob Moore, Regional Minister for New Brunswick and Minister of State (Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency) and John Ames, MLA, Charlotte-Campobello, joined Town of St. Andrews officials to make the announcement today.
The upgrades and improvements to the wharf include the installation of protection anodes over existing piers to help eliminate corrosion, the installation of floating decks, upgrades to the old section of the wharf’s deck, repairs to the wharf’s understructure and a new breakwater.
The Government of Canada, through ACOA’s Innovative Communities Fund, is contributing $515,000 to the project, while the Province of New Brunswick is providing $375,000 and the Town of St. Andrews is providing $400,000.
