Jim Flaherty, Canada’s Minister of Finance, and Senator Fabian Manning have officially opened the newly reconstructed Small Craft Harbours’ wharf in Bay Bulls, Newfoundland and Labrador.
The Small Craft Harbours’ wharf reconstruction project at Bay Bulls was completed at a cost of $3.8m and was funded through the $71.6m emergency assistance invested by the Harper government to clean-up and repair the damaged marine infrastructure after a number of severe storms hit Atlantic Canada and elsewhere in 2010.
The project involved demolition and removal of the damaged wharf, construction of a new treated timber crib wharf complete with armour stone protection on the seaward side, installation of new electrical infrastructure, improvements to site grading, the installation of asphalt and concrete toppings.
“The newly constructed wharf in Bay Bulls is an asset for harbour users and the town. It is a revenue generator for the Harbour Authority and the entire region,” said Don Drew, president of the Harbour Authority at Bay Bulls. “The wharf is home to local and transient fishing vessels of all sizes and provides shelter to the town’s tour boats and recreational boaters.”
