NORTH SYD­NEY — There will be fenc­ing go­ing up at the North Syd­ney ter­mi­nal Mon­day.

In or­der to com­ply with Trans­port Canada reg­u­la­tions, Marine At­lantic has un­til April 1 to have a se­cu­rity plan in place that in­cludes pos­si­ble clo­sure of the gate­way off Com­mer­cial Street in North Syd­ney.

Even­tu­ally, all Marine At­lantic prop­er­ties will be fenced, with any point of ac­cess through a con­trolled gate. In the mean­time, com­mis­sion­aires will con­tinue to es­cort peo­ple across the prop­erty.

Ek­istics Plan­ning and De­sign of Dart­mouth, a multi-dis­ci­plinary con­sult­ing firm spe­cial­iz­ing in land de­vel­op­ment plan­ning, de­sign and project man­age­ment hired to help find a so­lu­tion to the walk­way is­sue at Marine At­lantic's North Syd­ney ter­mi­nal, will meet with stake­hold­ers Mon­day at 1 p.m.

The busi­ness com­mu­nity is con­cerned that clos­ing off pedes­trian ac­cess will ad­versely af­fect the down­town busi­nesses and po­ten­tial tourist traf­fic.
