While re­pairs con­tin­ued to the Bur­geo High­way over the week­end, res­i­dents of the com­mu­nity re­ceived a boost of sup­plies via ferry last Satur­day.

The Terra Nova, which usu­ally trav­els be­tween Gaultois, Mc­Cal­lum and Her­mitage, paid a visit to Bur­geo and Grey River Satur­day with sup­plies to re­stock the shelves at some lo­cal busi­nesses.

The Ma­rine Voy­ager, which cov­ers the Fran­cois-Grey River-Bur­geo route, was ex­pected to do the same Sun­day. It was sched­uled to make stops in Bur­geo, Grey River, Ramea and Fran­cois.

The Bur­geo High­way was re­opened to traf­fic Sun­day evening, just un­der a week af­ter the rem­nants of hur­ri­cane Matthew dumped at least 234 mil­lime­tres of rain on the area and washed out the road.


The Terra Nova ar­rived in Bur­geo Oct. 15 with sup­plies for sev­eral busi­nesses.


Sup­plies are un­loaded from the Terra Nova in Bur­geo Oct. 15. The ferry brought some much-needed pro­vi­sions to town while crews worked to re­pair the Bur­geo High­way and get it open to traf­fic.
