Fleming Park seawall to be repaired

In the August 18th Chronicle Herald, Michael Lightstone reported:
 
“Years of deferred maintenance have helped create a hazardous situation in a waterfront park in Halifax and could result in the city being sued over an injury, regional council heard Tuesday.

According to the local councillor, a woman walking alone on the seawall at Sir Sandford Fleming Park recently did hurt herself when she fell off the unstable wall and tumbled into the Northwest Arm.

The woman injured her foot but isn’t planning to sue the municipality, council heard. But she, or anyone else, could have easily struck her head on the crumbling wall and been seriously hurt, or worse, said Coun. Linda Mosher (Purcells Cove-Armdale).

Emergency repair work is required immediately, she told council, while making references to internal Halifax Regional Municipality email messages indicating city staff knew about the problem as far back as 2006.”

The council agreed to the emergency repairs, but the cost is unknown.
