Little Tancook Island Ferry Wharf Inspection - Nova Scotia Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal
Allnorth performed a condition assessment and a repair/replacement options analysis for the Little Tancook Island Ferry Wharf, located on Little Tancook Island, Lunenburg County, Nova Scotia. The ferry wharf was constructed prior to 1953 and is currently the only point of access to the Island. The wharf consists of a 514 foot long, by 25 foot wide, treated timber crib stem with a 104 foot long, by 33 foot wide, treated timber crib ell.
The condition assessment included a visual inspection of the complete structure and an evaluation of each component of the structure for deterioration and displacement.
With this structure located on an island, the condition assessment activities needed to be scheduled around available ferry crossings, conducted at low tide, and in favorable weather conditions.
A detailed inspection report was prepared and provided to Nova Scotia Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal.
The condition assessment formed the basis of a life-cycle cost benefit analysis. In that analysis, Allnorth investigated alternatives including rehabilitation options to extend the life span of the existing wharf for an additional 30 years and reconstruction options for a new wharf.
