The Proposed Project

The Department of National Defence (DND) has proposed a project. The project consists of adding eight new lines (paths) to the existing combat route and its extension as well as new targets. For this expansion, a total of 56ha will have to be deforested following Unexploded Explosive Ordnance (UXO) clearing work. The work is planned to take place over several years.
