Quebec Premier Jean Charest announced a $100-million plan Thursday to build 425 kilometres of highway along the north shore of the Gulf of St. Lawrence. route 138.

The highway construction plan will take 10 years to complete.

However, there will still be a 40-kilometre gap to be filled, and the Quebec government has not yet committed to build a bridge across the Natashquan River.

Newfoundland and Labrador will be starting a five-year road surfacing project next year on the road between Happy Valley-Goose Bay, in central Labrador, and Labrador City and Wabush in the west.

Hickey would like to see the Quebec portion of the highway upgraded as well.

"For my part right now, the 389 section is a priority for discussion with the province of Quebec," Hickey said.


To anyone who did anything to make this become a reality congratulations on your efforts becoming a reality.
