Government of Canada invests $54 million in Halifax infrastructure projects

This morning in Nova Scotia, Justin Trudeau announced $54.8 million dollars in infrastructure funding for the Halifax region.
With this announcement, I’m reminded once again why I ran for MP – because I believe strongly that smart investments in infrastructure have the power to strengthen our communities, to grow the economy, and make Canada an even better place in which to live, work, and raise families.

Here are just some highlights of what the Halifax region will receive:

TRANSIT (15 projects)
– $17.5 million to replace and purchase 39 public transit buses
– $6 million for ferry replacement
– $950,000 for transit terminal upgrades
– $250,000 for an electric bus pilot project
– $235,000 for bus stop improvements
– $150,000 to increase bus stop accessibility

WATER & WASTEWATER (7 projects)
– $8.1 million for sewer system rehabilitation in the Northwest Arm
– $3.7 million for water main rehabilitation on Quinpool Road
– $2.2 million for central water and sewer in Herring Cove

With this $54 million investment in the Halifax region, the federal government has demonstrated again that it views Halifax as a key player in its commitment to build a stronger, more resilient, more prosperous Canada for all.
