Harbour Passage Extension Now Underway

25-Sep-2018

The City of Saint John’s popular Cranberry Trail will soon make its way further along the City’s South End. Construction of the latest Harbour Passage extension began this week, taking it from its current stop at the Diamond Jubilee Cruise Terminal on Water Street to continue through to Broad and Sydney Streets.

The work involves the installation of the Cranberry Trail along the southern side of Broad Street, complete with park furnishings, light standards and landscaping to match the existing portions of Harbour Passage.

A unique public art piece will also be installed at the corner of Charlotte and Broad Streets. The concept for the artwork originated from the project designers, the Glenn Group. It will feature three oversized tin cans wrapped in scenes of the Saint John Harbour.

“Harbour Passage has always been about the journey of discovery and connections to the waterfront,” says Dann Glenn, principal of the Glenn Group. “The new sculpture plaza will provide a place to rest and reflect on the evolution of this waterfront neighbourhood, which is represented in three images on stacked barrels – an ode to the City’s popular Tin Can Beach.”

An interpretive panel will accompany the sculpture that will explore the origins of development in the Saint John’s South End.

The cost of the extension is approximately $550,000 and is jointly funded by the City of Saint John and the Federal Public Transit Infrastructure Fund, which supports active transportation projects.

The extension, which aligns with MoveSJ’s Pedestrian Strategy, is expected to be completed this fall.
