Canadian government to invest in safety and capacity at Wabush Airport.


Transport Canada on Wednesday announced that the Wabush Airport will benefit from over CAD2m in infrastructure improvements.

Infrastructure improvements at the airport are expected to include a CAD1.7m roof restoration for the air terminal and maintenance buildings. Restoration work is already underway and is expected to be completed by autumn 2011.

This investment is also expected to contribute to the South Airport Terminal parking upgrade, for which a contract for CAD436,000 has been awarded to H.J O'Connell Construction Ltd. Work on this project is expected to begin in September 2011.

Minister of intergovernmental affairs and regional minister for Newfoundland and Labrador Peter Pensahue made the announcement of the plans on behalf of Denis Lebel, minister of transport, infrastructure and communities.
