Repairs Begin at Two Harbours

Tobermory | by Kevin Bernard  

Contract awarded for 338 thousand to modify harbours in Tobermory, South Baymouth.

It's a little late, but the contract has now been awarded for work on the Tobermory and South Baymouth docks.

Originally, it was expected the tender would be awarded last Friday, but final approvals finally came in May 24th.

A company out of Lasalle will be handling the modifications to the Fenders at the two harbours.

Owen Sound Transportation Company President and CEO Susan Schrempf says the contract is worth 338 thousand dollars -- about 50 thousand dollars more than expected.

Schrempf says the dock at Tobermory is the worst of the two, and work will begin almost immediately.

It is expected the upgrades will be done in about four weeks time.

The issue of low water levels and the need to adjust the fender levels at Tobermory and South Baymouth delayed the start of the Chi-cheemaun season by two weeks this year.

Even now, the Ferry cannot handle heavy transport trucks until the modifications are done at the two docks.
