O’Briens Trucking Ltd. would like to inform the public that we voluntarily left Ragged Beach today and was not shut down by the RCMP. The RCMP visited the construction site at the request of O’Brien’s Trucking Ltd and the Town of Witless Bay. We decided to leave the construction site as the safety of the workers and the public had be compromised. O’Brien’s Trucking and Witless Bay Council are working together to make sure the construction can continue safely and in a timely manner to allow for everyone to continue enjoying Ragged Beach and the East Coast Trail! We ask for public cooperation during this process so it can go as smoothly as possible for the workers and the public! For any hikers in the area we will be accommodating you so you can still enjoy the trail, our workers will assist you safely to and from the trail. We apologize for any delays and/or the lack of parking during the construction.

Town of Witless Bay
The Town of Witless Bay would like to advise that as a follow up to a previously posted notice on the Town’s Website and Facebook page, erosion protection work has been authorized to commence on Ragged Beach, located at the end of Gallows Cove Road today, July 31.
Ragged Beach has seen much erosion over the years, creating a safety hazard to the public. The Town has hired O’Brien’s Trucking Ltd. to reinforce the embankment to prevent further erosion. This project is designed strictly for safety reasons only. There are no plans for any other type of construction.
Ragged Beach is a popular location for hikers using the East Coast Trail and for the general public to enjoy, and it is the Town’s responsibility to ensure the safety of the public. This work is scheduled to take approximately one week to complete. We would appreciate the public’s cooperation on this matter.
