not good enough for me. a coat of paint and iron bars at the entrance is only a band aid while the structures fall down and are then forgotten. they should be replaced and identified with their purpose clearly posted for all to see. It was this "rock" that we call Home (newfoundland) that protected North America from Hilter during WW2. Least we forget.

I think it’s great that they are restoring the war bunker however the ones in St. John’s are not the only ones in the province that need to be restored. There is a beautiful war bunker in Phillip’s Head that should be maintained as well. These bunkers are a part of our history and we should protect these, they should be used as tourist attractions.

Now if they would only remove the graffiti from the surrounding rocks. Half the job was done.

Good to hear. If the grafitti comes back, I hope they catch them and make them remove it. The city is dirty with grafitti and just because other cities have it doesn't mean we need to have it.

im impressed on the fast action parks canada gave to removing the grafetti off the bunkers on the signal hill side of the hiking trails. myself and the kids were over to fort amerst last evening and the brightness from the new paint made a big and cleaner look to the other side. ppl should respect the properties and not plaster grafetti on them. im happy parks canada acted on this fast cause alot of ppl look forward in keeping the history of their province well at hand .

There must have already been plans to spruce those bunkers up before the published complaints. That is amazingly swift.

Now the criminals have a nice clean sheet to use for their graffiti...
