The City of Campbell River achieved another significant milestone on the Old Island HIghway (Highway 19A) upgrade project last week with the completion of the new lift station, named the Simms Creek Pump Station.

The city issued a certificate of completion to contractor Ketza Pacific Construction 1993 Ltd. for the completion of the new lift station on March 29, 2011.

This contract, which involved the replacement of the sanitary lift station and the construction of the new pump station, was completed ahead of schedule.

The original deadline for completion was March 31.

The City received an extension on this project from provincial and federal funders allowing the completion date to be extended to Oct. 31, and was still able to achieve the original completion goal date of March 31 for this portion of the project.

This portion of the project is projected to be completed with the final cost being approximately five per cent under the approved budget.

“This is a significant achievement and an important upgrade to our infrastructure,” said Mayor Charlie Cornfield.
