Federal Transport Minister David Collenette has signed the first federal-provincial agreement under the $600 million Strategic Highway Infrastructure Program announced in April. In July, the Minister agreed to provide joint funding of $34.6 million over the next five years for highway improvement projects in the province of Nova Scotia. He signed an agreement with the province and the Ministry of State for the Atlantic Opportunities Agency.
The federal funding includes $13.5 million for a project to twin 21 kilometres of existing two-lane highway from Mount Uniacke to Ellershouse in Nova Scotia.
