The province has announced $2.5 million in funding for improvements to the Germaansen Landing Road.

While Nechako Lakes MLA John Rustad had announced funding to the Germansen Landing/North Road in September, the province has finalized a figure for the improvements.

Improvements will take place on the first 57 km of the road from the Fort St. James municipal boundary, and will repair the road base, gravel the road, improve ditches and brush out sight lines on the route.

Areas have been identified where road base repair and ditching are most needed and the brushing will take place between kilometres 22 and 30.

Work on the road base started in June of 2012 and the entire project is expected to be done by Sept. 30, 2013.

Rustad credits the community of Fort St. James with the realization of the project.

“This upgrade to Germansen Landing Road is a demonstration of the tenacity of the people of Fort St. James and surrounding communities in coming together to accomplish something,” he said.
