Port of Bayside Wharf Refurbishment in Saint Andrews, New Brunswick.

The Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency (ACOA) intends to fund a project in Saint Andrews, New Brunswick. project represents a revitalization of the existing port infrastructure to extend its life by up to 20 years, and the purchase of a floating dock. The preliminary engineering report shows that the project will include the installation of pile jackets, sheet pile repairs, site work, demolition, removals, and reinstatement. Without this port, and the planned revitalization, many key New Brunswick companies would be challenged to operate in a cost competitive position.
