Borden-Carleton, Prince Edward Island – Prince Edward Island will receive $19.69 million in new projects to improve transportation efficiency. The funding includes up to $10.54 million from the federal government and $9.15 million in provincial money.
“When combined with an equal contribution from our own provincial capital budget, this investment will lead to important improvements in Prince Edward Island’s transportation infrastructure,” said Robert Ghiz, Premier of P.E.I., “and it will allow our primary producers to get their products to markets all over the world more efficiently.”
New investments include improvements to the Trans-Canada Highway to realign traffic flow and improve safety. Funding will also make it possible to expand the Charlottetown Airport terminal and to install technologies at the Confederation Bridge to improve monitoring of hazardous conditions and better traffic management.
