Step of the procedure /
Decision and authorization
The primary purpose of the project is to secure the access road to the airport (Litua Street) and to municipal services (landfill and wastewater treatment). This road also provides access to the land around the northern village. Drivers have reported going off the road in this area and the community is asking that the area be made safer for its users. The road needs to be widened in some areas to allow for the installation of safety barriers (guardrails).
The installation of guardrails on 674 metres of Litua Street requires the shoulders to be widened by one to two metres on each side, on 12 sections of road.
