Grand Falls- Windsor to Badger Fibre Optic Transmission Line

Proponent: Newfoundland Power Inc.

Summary of Environmental Assessment Process

Project Description:

The proponent proposes to construct a 24 kilometre aerial fibre optic transmission line from Grand Falls-Windsor to near Badger. The proposed route will follow woods roads from Grand Falls-Windsor heading west and will include an aerial crossing of the Exploit's River in the vicinity of Tom Joe Brook to tie into the existing fibre optic line network approximately 6 kilometres east of Badger. The rational for the project is to provide greater separation of the two high density fibre routes along sections where the existing aerial and underground fibre routes run in the same corridor between Grand Falls-Windsor and Badger to reduce potential for failure. The proponent proposes to carry out the project immediately upon release from the environmental assessment process.
