Road To Partridge Island Seen As Financial Folly

Doubt has been raised whether you would be able to maintain a road from the mainland to Partridge Island for any length of time before it washes away after being battered by storms. 

Former Fundy Baykeeper David Thompson warns having a road could be an expensive proposition because of the waves which can be ferocious during storms and that would necessitate a lot of maintenance on a regular basis to keep a road intact.

Thompson tells CHSJ News a better and less expensive idea would be a floating wharf that could be stored away during the winter.
