Bridges cracked and corroded

Through provincial access to information legislation, The Telegram obtained inspection reports on 731 bridges. They were built as far back as 1925 and as recently as last year, although only 61 of them were built this century. Stories ran in The Telegram print edition June 23, 2012 accompanied by photos and graphics — all now part of this collection.

Bridges cracked and corroded
The bridge on Harvey Street (Route 70) in Harbour Grace, near the entrance to Riverhead, was built in 1969 and is in quite a dilapidated state. Vehicles are forced to slow down and swerve around the oversized potholes created by missing asphalt. Also, water runoff has severely eroded the earth near the bridge abutments. — Photo by Terry Roberts/Transcontinental Media

Lower Churchill Project construction September 23, 2014

The Telegram accepted an offer from Nalcor Energy for a three-day tour of a collection of Lower Churchill Project work sites in Labrador beginning Monday , Sept. 15, 2014. A single reporter was sent. The costs for the tour were covered by the Crown corporation, with the exception of a single night’s hotel stay and a breakfast. The total cost is not yet available. The paper viewed the tour as an opportunity to connect directly with individual project managers rarely heard from to date, as well as more people working on the project.

Using interviews and discussions from the tour, The Telegram offers a five-part series providing an overview and update on the province's controversial $6.99-billion power project, with a look at related topics including: project logistics, camp life and worker safety.
