We held a discussion on June 20, 2018. Representatives from Halifax Water, HRM (Active Transportation), Halifax Regional Council, the Cobequid Community Health Board, the LGS, and the community were present.
Halifax Water has chosen a consultant to complete the water main twinning, with work scheduled to begin in Spring 2019. Our group is interested in whether there are ways this planned work could help Lucasville achieve a Greenway. All groups were supportive.
A representative from the Active Transportation department at HRM revealed that HRM is willing to take this project on as a direct delivery project, and they have hired the same consultant as Halifax Water to come up with the next level of the plan. The scope will include all of Lucasville Road, from Sackville Drive to Hammonds Plains Road. The consultant will look for efficiencies between the current project with Halifax Water and the Lucasville Greenway.
