WorkSafeNB shuts down section of of Place Bathurst Mall

WorkSafeNB has ordered a section of the Place Bathurst Mall be closed for safety reasons.

The closure includes all second-floor offices and six stores.

The move comes following a massive snowfall that resulted in some cracks forming in the walls of some offices.

WorkSafeNB aims to ensure the building didn't suffer any structural damage and can withstand future snowfalls.

The closed sections will reopen once engineers have ensured there's no safety hazard for tenants and customers.

We've reached out the Place Bathurst Mall for comment.
