Registration 963

Proponent: Newfoundland and Labrador Snowmobile Association

Summary of Environmental Assessment Process

  • The proponent proposes to develop a 57 km snowmobile trail from an area near the town of New-Wes-Valley, Bonavista Bay to connect with the Provincial Integrated Snowmobile Trail near Gander. Phase One would consist of trimming of trees and low growth along the old Route 320, 24 km long, 6 m wide. Phase Two includes a 13 km section, 6 m wide, along an old forest access road. Phase Two also includes a 14 km section through undeveloped land, mostly low spruce. The proponent proposes that existing bridges etc. would be repaired or new bridging/culverts installed where necessary. Warm-up shelters and Look-off sites would also be constructed. The proponent anticipates that construction will begin in the early fall of 2001, employing approximately 20 workers for 4 months.
