A recently built stairway leading into the Halifax Harbour on in the city’s downtown waterfront will soon get safety signage.

The steps, named Queen’s Landing, were part of the Queen’s Marque project built by Armour Group Limited at a pricetag of nearly $200 million.

The complex’s public space, including the stairway, opened to the public in late 2021. Though the steps were intended as a place to sit near the water, people are now using them to go for a swim.
