The province is investing in infrastructure upgrades for towns on the Northern Peninsula.
In a prepared release, the provincial government announced $1.3 million in cost-shared, capital works funding for the district of The Straits-White Bay North. The money will go toward water system upgrades in St. Anthony and lift station projects in Roddickton-Bide Arm.
The province will provide 90 per cent of the funding, with the respective towns covering the remaining 10 per cent.
In St. Anthony, $434,000 will support upgrades to the water intake system. An investment of $829,600 will be made in Roddickton-Bide Arm for lift station projects, which were part of the 2009 amalgamation agreement between the two communities, the release says.
