The governments of Canada and Newfoundland and Labrador have announced $45.4 million to improve a section of the Trans Labrador Highway.

The project consists of the widening and paving of Route 510 from Charlottetown junction to Cartwright junction. Once complete, it will improve the quality of life for local residents, encourage tourism in the region and facilitate the movement of goods across the province.

“The Trans Labrador Highway project is extremely important to Labradorians, and is vital to the economic development of the region,” said Dwight Ball, premier of Newfoundland and Labrador. “A paved highway will significantly enhance transportation in the region, and will foster the success of key industry sectors such as mining, oil and gas, construction, retail trade, information and cultural industries, and tourism.”

The Government of Canada is contributing $22.2 million through the New Building Canada Fund for this project. The Government of Newfoundland and Labrador is contributing $23.2 million.
