Cape Breton Post - - FRONT PAGE -

Some­thing’s up with the sign that di­rects traf­fic to the Marine At­lantic’s ferry ter­mi­nal in North Syd­ney.

“There was an ob­vi­ous spell­ing mis­take on a new sign that was in­stalled around Marine At­lantic’s ferry ter­mi­nal,” said Roy MacDon­ald, Depart­ment of Trans­porta­tion and In­fra­struc­ture’s area man­ager. “We’ve been work­ing on new signs all win­ter and we just in­stalled a bunch over the last two weeks.”

The sign reads ‘Nlfd Ferry’ and it should say ‘Nfld Ferry.’

MacDon­ald said the Trans­porta­tion Depart­ment has a fairly large pro­duc­tion fa­cil­ity in Truro that makes all the high­way signs for the prov­ince.

“It was ob­vi­ously a pro­duc­tion er­ror in mak­ing that par­tic­u­lar sign that didn’t get picked up,” he said.

“We are go­ing to in­stall a tem­po­rary panel today (Tues­day).

“It was a mis­take, we rec­og­nize that and it will be changed. There are two new pan­els on the way from the sign shop and they will be in­stalled as soon as we get them.”
