Hwy 103 Twinning
Highway 103 is an important part of Nova Scotia's transportation system. The twinning from Upper Tantallon to Hubbards will bring this section of highway up to current
standards, while improving safety and efficiency of the road. This phase is an extension of the twinning from Halifax to Tantallon, which was completed in 2006.
The project has 3 main components: the twinning of the highway, an interchange between existing exits 5 and 6, and a proposed road to connect the interchange and
St. Margaret's Bay Road.
Currently, the project is at the Environmental Assessment stage. Studies are being conducted to gather information on such items of interest as the presence of wetlands,
rare and endangered species, water courses, archaeological artifacts, property ownership, topology, socio-economic impact and recreational use.
