Fredericton Station Update
The Fredericton railway station is in the news again. The Daily Gleaner published an update on the station, featuring quotes from... me. :)
I became a director of the Fredericton Friends of the Railway Inc. last year. The Friends are a small group dedicated to enabling the restoration of the station, and have achieved some success in bringing parties together to talk about the station.
Enterprise Fredericton is going to determine the actual cost of restoration for the station. They will be updating older studies and engaging some professional help to get a real cost. There are a number of figures being tossed around, anywhere from $400,000 to $6-8 million, so a real number would be very useful.
As I said in the article, any development on the station is promising.
