Cabot Trail included in highway budget

A Cabot Trail facelift, more inspectors and tons of road paving will be part of the province’s $310 million highway improvement budget.

The highway spending is far and away the biggest share of Nova Scotia’s $710-million capital budget.

Transportation Minister Bill Estabrooks unveiled a slew of projects yesterday that included twinning highway 104 in Pictou County (estimated at $7.4 million), continuing twinning of the 104 in Antigonish ($23.2 million) and twinning highway 125 ($5.3 million.)

There’s also funding to twin highway 101 in the Annapolis Valley, pave hundreds of kilometres of roads, replace bridges and hire three new bridge inspectors and three new truck inspectors.
