     Please be advised that maintenance activity is expected to be conducted on the abandoned rail bed between Middleton and New Germany and between New Germany and Caledonia for the remainder of the summer. Watch for workers and machinery and proceed with caution in those areas.

    Additionally, grading activity has unearthed steel plates and railway ties that could potentially cause damage to ATV tires. PROCEED WITH CAUTION!!!!!

    “TIR Update on Share The Road Pilot Project”

    “We are moving forward with the pilots and are grateful to the advice and assistance ATVANS has provided ,and in particular, the tireless efforts of Cory Robar and others.  We are in the drafting stage with respect to the necessary regulations (under both the Motor Vehicles Act and the OHV Act) to bring the pilots into effect, the lawyers are on it and we are moving it through the process.  As you know, the proof of concept is approved and the drafting work is proceeding  it is down to the regulations approval process.  I think it is safe to say that these pilots are moving forward, in no small measure, due to the positive engagement and leadership of ATVANS.  We are looking forward to working with ATVANS on an evaluation framework for the pilots and our continued close working relationship as the pilots roll out.  I am confident, we are going to get this done.”

    An update was received from TIR concerning the Digby Area Trail Closure that due to some unforeseen delays the Digby Trail will remain closed until May-June 2018 timeframe.

    The Digby ATV club has been advised by Nova Scotia Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal that due to Highway overpass construction on Highway 101 near Marshalltown the trail leading to and from Digby in that area will be closed. This closure will start on Monday Dec 18, 2017 and beginning that date that trail going to Digby will be inaccessible until the project is finished. We understand this work is anticipated to be completed March 2018.

    The trail will be Blocked Off from the paved road in Jordantown to the dirt road on the Upper Cross road.
    We will post and share additional information as we receive it

    Update to notification sent out to membership on July 12, 2017


    All of the crews are currently working along the transmission line corridor between Highway 104 (near the Cobequid Pass Toll Plaza) and the Springhill Substation, including the Polly Brook area, Collingwood, Williamsdale, Silica Rd area and Westchester Rd area. The crews are completing the various stages of construction activity such as pole installation, framing and conductor stringing. We have requested our contractor place warning signs along the transmission line corridor on either side of their work site to warn the public of the work activity ahead. We ask that the information be passed along to your members so they are aware of the work taking place and use caution while on the trails.


    As mentioned before, the safety of the public and our work crews is our top priority and if you have any questions at all please do not hesitate to contact us.

    A wood contracting will be trucking on the railbed in the River John area in the vicinity of the Joudrey and Dean Chapter roads . Attached is a screen shot of the area.

    I’m not sure of the timing but I believe they will be starting soon and could last for a period of a few months until completed.

    There will will be a community meeting at the Mount Uniacke Fire Hall next Wed Night (6 Sep) at 7 pm to discuss turning the railroad tracks into trails. A lot of work has been put into this by a local volunteer group and they need to now get the community behind them. Please share this so that we can turn out in large numbers.

    If there are any ATVANS/SANS members or Executive members able to make it, I encouraging you to show up.

    Anyone who rides an ATV, Dirt Bike or Snowmobile should be there to be heard.

    Nova Scotia Power will be developing a new 138kV line within an existing easement which runs adjacent to transmission line 6513 from Onslow to Springhill. The existing right-of-way easement travels through the Polly Brook Wilderness Area. Nova Scotia Power will be in this area in the next couple of months to install swamp mats as required and then off and on throughout the project over the next year installing structures and stringing conductor.
