Shelburne Highway Twinning Public Consultation

Thursday, March 9th, 2017 

6:30 - 8:30 p.m.

Shelburne Community Centre

King Street, Shelburne, NS


Nova Scotians are invited to attend public consultation sessions on the highway twinning report.

Twinning the eight sections included in this study would cost more than $2 billion. Given that cost, we’re studying the feasibility of tolling as an option to allow twinning to take place sooner.

These consultations will present information on how highways can be twinned sooner using tolls.

All materials that will be presented at the session will be available for download before the first session at

In addition to the 12 in-person sessions, feedback can be submitted online at or by mail.
