The road ahead

The strange chimeric "corporation" charged with building a road along the Lower North Shore has a change of heart, and will now, um, start to build a road along the Lower North Shore instead:
The Corporation has determined that the $73 million that is still available from the $100 million budget will make it possible to pursue the development the road System Connecting Kegaska and La Romaine, along with Pakuashipi and Chevery. This means that close to $4 million will be invested in 2010-2011 in order to build 2.5 km of roads, starting in La Tabatière and heading west.

According to Minister MacMillan: "The new orientations determined by the Corporation Pakatan Meskanau de la Grande séduction are in keeping with our government's vision. Our joint objective is to complète thèse road links, which will be adapted to the realities of the Lower North Shore and, when completed, will improve the quality of life of citizens."

Minister Simard added: "I am very pleased with the Corporation's new priorities, which will make it possible for us to take another step toward opening up access to the municipalities on the Lower North Shore."

The Corporation has decided to remove the bridge across rivière St-Augustin that was included in the original contract. The project for this bridge is not being cancelled altogether. Instead, it will be listed as a priority in a future contract.
