Halifax Harbour Bridges 2022-23 Annual Report released
September 15, 2023
Halifax Harbour Bridges 2022-23 Annual report was released this week, detailing a wide variety of initiatives that deliver on both its strategic plan and its commitment to safe and reliable cross-harbour transportation.
Delivered digitally, the report details projects, HHB’s dedication to the community, its responsible use of toll revenue. It provides a behind-the-scenes look at the industry-leading work HHB is doing around asset management and delves into an independent study which shows the Halifax bridges generate more than $120 million in societal benefits each year.
In the Look Ahead section, readers can learn about the three priority projects shaping our organization and the future of the bridge user experience: e-Tolling, the future of the MacKay Bridge, and execution of our 10-year capital and maintenance plan.
As HHB works toward seeing the long-term benefits of those projects, there will continue to be disruptions and inconveniences for our bridge users. Critical paving and maintenance work prompted several weekend closures of the Macdonald Bridge this summer. As we push into fall, there will be a series of weekend closures on the MacKay Bridge.
“Nobody likes to close a bridge,” says CEO Tony Wright. “At HHB we understand the traffic snarl that results. However, as custodians of the critical yet aging infrastructure, it’s imperative that we do everything necessary to ensure the safety of users, while extending the life of bridges for as long as possible.”
