PICTOU – County council’s request to have street lights underneath an overpass leading to the Pictou County Wellness Centre has been referred to an engineer.
Coun. Chester Dewar was told that Transportation and Infrastructure recently stated that if the municipality was considering putting lights under an overpass that covers a stretch of Westville Road, it would have to come out of the county’s pocketbook.
He was told that TIR has passed the matter along to an engineer for an opinion. County council has expressed concern in the past about the lack of lighting under the overpass that could prohibit people from using the Pictou County Wellness Centre.
