The province of Nova Scotia has signed a one-year preservation agreement with the Cape Breton and Central Nova Scotia Railway to maintain the St. Peter’s Junction to Sydney line.

Business Minister Geoff MacLellan says the agreement preserves the existing rail line, which is a key component of the proposed container terminal in Sydney.

The agreement reimburses the company for valid expenses such as maintaining security and buildings on the line.
