New Aliant Tower

Work is underway with the construction of a new communications tower near Rigolet.

Wayne Sheppard is with Bell Aliant.

He says a contracted crew is now constructing the new tower in Double Mer, located northwest of Rigolet.

Sheppard says this new tower will be a big improvement over the last one.

Last winter, the tower in Double Mer collapsed from an enormous amount of ice buildup.

The collapse caused communications in Nunatsiavut to go down for about two weeks.
