TransLink announces $45 million in road and cycling infrastructure
South Delta Leader
TransLink will spent more than $45 million in road and bicycle improvements in Metro Vancouver this year.
The bulk of the money, roughly $39 million, is earmarked to operate and repair the 600 kilometres of roads under maintenance control of the regional transit authority.
The balance of the $6.7 million will go toward 22 capital improvement projects across 12 Metro municipalities, although Delta will see just 1.3 per cent of that funding.
Pipelines, infrastructure needed for Canada to profit from Ukraine crisis
A lack of pipelines and other infrastructure means Canada has little hope of reaping any kind of energy or resource windfall from the crisis in Ukraine, a group of international energy experts said Thursday.
Analysts and academics from Alberta, Europe and Ukraine itself say Canada remains the better part of a decade away from having the energy network necessary to be any kind of meaningful energy supplier in Europe.
Feds, province, Winnipeg renew deal for infrastructure money
An agreement that pours millions of dollars in federal infrastructure funds into the province has been extended for 10 years.
Federal and provincial officials made the announcement Friday at Winnipeg city hall.
Mayor Sam Katz said it means $40.5 million dollars for the city, out of $65 million in total for the province in 2014 alone.
Officials said Canada's Gas Tax Fund, which began in 2006 and funds local infrastructure projects across Canada, has been doubled, indexed and made permanent.
20 years later: How the Chunnel plans to stay on track
The Globe and Mail
Twenty years ago, a British monarch and a French president jointly inaugurated the Channel Tunnel, an event that is being celebrated Tuesday by Groupe Eurotunnel SA, a company that flirted with financial death but is now reborn.
The anniversary is a chance to celebrate the world's longest sub-sea crossing and also a marketing opportunity for the tunnel operator. Eurotunnel owns and operates the tunnel and shuttle trains that transport cars and trucks across the Straits of Dover. But it wants to expand its business much further than the Kentish and Normandy coasts.
