Port Saint John gets $68M from N.B. to upgrade container terminals
The provincial government has announced up to $68.3 million over seven years to help expand and modernize Port Saint John's container terminals.
Premier Brian Gallant made the announcement outside the Diamond Jubilee Cruise Terminal on Thursday morning with a large ship at work as his backdrop.
"This important strategic infrastructure investment will create jobs and long-term economic growth for the port city, the Fundy region and our entire province," Gallant told the estimated crowd of 100 people, to applause.
Nearly 2,000 jobs will be created over the seven years, with a $152-million boost to the gross domestic product, the premier said. www.cbc.ca/news/c...
Greenwich Council approves London City Cruise Port
The planning application includes amended proposals for a cruise liner terminal development project, known as London City Cruise Port, but also includes residential development, open space, community amenity space and public realm.
Planning permission for the terminal was originally granted in 2012 as part of a redevelopment project at Enderby Wharf. A revised application was recently submitted to make changes to the northern part of the site. The planning application was reported to Royal Borough of Greenwich Planning Board on 21 July 2015. www.out-law.com/e...
