Beginning the week of February 25 brush and tree clearing will take place on the Gaetz Brook Greenway between the East Chezzetcook Road and Stat Hill Road near the 107 highway. The work will generally consist of mulching shrubs and trees on either side of the travelled way and one metre beyond the ditch centreline where applicable. The work is preparatory to ditching, grading and installation of a new gravel and crusher dust surface. Initially this may present a rough appearance but is a necessary step along the way to creating the greenway. Various sections of the trail will be closed for safety’s sake during the work which is hoped to be completed in the month of March weather depending.
SATA Trails engaged WSP Consultants to carry out work in four phases: 1.) Complete an assessment of the adandoned rail corridor: 2.) Produce a preliminary plan for review; 3.) Produce a detailed design and 4.) Provide a tender package. Phase 1 has been completed and Phase 2 is substantially completed. Below is a link to a first draft of the preliminary plan for review and comment by the community. There will be a public presentation before final phases are started although the place and time have yet to be determined. In the meantime we welcome your input using the 'Contact Us' link.
