Woolwich awards gravel tender
Woolwich will spend $190,000 this year to upgrade six stretches of gravel road in the township.
Meeting this week, councillors awarded a contract to Joe Kerr Ltd. to supply and place some 15,370 tonnes of gravel at a cost of $12.15 per tonne (after HST rebate). That’s up from $11.15 per tonne last year, reflecting higher gravel and, particularly, haulage costs.
The company was the sole bidder on the work tendered by the township.
Roads slated for sections of new gravel include Letson Drive, Buggy Lane, Halm Road, Cox Creek Road, Lundy Road and Durant Road.
The tendered amount was slightly higher than the $186,200 budgeted by the township.
