It’s full steam ahead for the Millennium Trail upgrade project. While work has been ongoing for the past week or more and over five kms of the trail has already been levelled and dressed, municipal officials, stakeholders and project supporters gathered at the trail head on Lake st on Tuesday morning to hold a ceremonial groundbreaking.
The rehabilitation of the Millennium Trail is a multi-year project in partnership with the PEC Trails, an informal community group and chief donor to the project. PEC Trails has fundraised $120,000 in support of the project, with the municipality committing a total of $370,000 over three years (2017-19).
But the tender process clearly showed trail improvement costs would be great and only small sections of the trial would be rehabilitated if the work was handed over to contracted companies.
