Trans­porta­tion and Works Min­is­ter Steve Crocker says it’ll be a while longer be­fore se­ri­ous data starts com­ing in from the prov­ince’s as­phalt test­ing pi­lot project.

For the project, five ar­eas of the Trans-Canada High­way be­tween Fox­trap and Holy­rood were paved us­ing dif­fer­ent types of liq­uid as­phalt.

The project, which aims to de­ter­mine which as­phalt spec­i­fi­ca­tions best suit New­found­land and Labrador’s cli­mate and en­vi­ron­ment, started about a year ago, Crocker said.
