NEWFOUNDLAND TCH PAVING ENDED, ROAD SPENDING TO DROP

HIGHWAY SPENDING IN NEWFOUNDLAND WILL DROP TO JUST OVER $30 MILLION IN THE COMING FISCAL YEAR /FROM $35.5 MILLION IN 1965-66/ AS A RESULT OF LAST YEARS PUSH TO COMPLETE PAVING OF THE PROVINCES SECTION OF THE TRANS-CANADA HIGHWAY /TCH/. DETAILS OF THE HIGHWAYS DEPARTMENTS PLANS WERE INDICATED IN THE BUDGET TABLED IN THE LEGISLATURE BY FINANCE MINISTER DR. F. W. ROWE. OUTLAY ON TCH WORK IS ESTIMATED AT $10 MILLION /COMPARED WITH $25 MILLION IN 1965-66/ WITH MUCH OF THE MONEY TO BE SPENT ON BRINGING THE ORIGINAL STRETCHES OF THE ROAD UP TO FULL TCH STANDARDS. ALMOST AS MUCH WILL BE SPENT ON TRUNK ROADS AS ON TCH. UNDER TWO AGREEMENTS WITH THE ATLANTIC DEVELOPMENT BOARD, NEWFOUNDLAND WILL SPEND OVER $9 MILLION ON TRUNK ROADS AND GET BACK HALF THAT AMOUNT FROM THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT. /CGRA/
