Road Trails Act Update - May 15th 2023

15 May 2023 12:33 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

Hello Folks, 

Some more news from the ROAD TRAILS ACT meeting last week.  Many are aware that the act has received Royal Assent but awaits proclamation – this is when the act goes into effect. The meeting with Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal (TIR) staff went well; we have submitted 38 locations identified by clubs across the province and will be providing TIR with more information. This includes land use agreements where required or letters of authority, evidence of community support and if we do not have this, we will begin to gather it with the assistance of the clubs and finally, exact GPS coordinates. 

Staff at TIR and Public Works are preparing an application form to be used for future sites. We also learned that future sites would flow from clubs to ATVANS and then on to TIR staff for consideration. 

For Road Trails on municipal-owned roads, we understand they can proceed through their bylaw process and some have already begun. 

Progress is being made and as we learn more, we will share it with members and on our website. These are exciting times that will create so many trail connections across Nova Scotia. 

Thank you, 

Barry Barnet 
Executive Director
