This $9.36m project has recently been awarded full funding as part of the Provincial Growth Fund’s West Coast commitment. The Charleston-Westport Coastal Trail Trust who are driving the project are currently completing detailed design, consenting and tender documentation ready to start the build in early 2020. We are aiming to have the trail open in the middle of 2021.
