The Quebec Ministry of Finance has advised Stornoway that the delay in granting contracts for civil works on segments C and D of the extension could result in an delay of all-season road access to the project.
As quoted in the press release:
Construction on the southernmost segments A and B is progressing well, and to date 109km out of 143km has been completed to a standard sufficient for vehicle access. In the north, tree clearing and ground surveying are approaching completion over the 100km of the road covered by segments C and D.
