Town Gets Answers On ATV Use Along Centennial Trail

A decision on using off-road vehicles on the Centennial Trail could be made as early as next week. Bridgewater council spent over an hour Monday night asking questions to a trails coordinator for the ATV Association of Nova Scotia. There were several issues including those revolving around insurance, the time of year vehicles could be used on the trail,  widening the trail's bridge to fit off-road vehicles, speed limits, hours of operation and enforcement. The Central Nova ATV club could have members patrol the trail and report back to police if there are any concerns. Bridgewater Police Chief John Collyer believes the idea could work.

The item will be back on council's agenda next Monday evening.
