WINNIPEG, Man. -- The Manitoba Trucking Association (MTA) is lauding the province’s investment in infrastructure.
The province announced it will spend more than ever before on highways and bridges in 2014.
“Investing in our highways means investing in the trade conduits that connect us to all of North America,” said Terry Shaw, general manager of the MTA. “These projects, and the other significant trade routes this government has committed to upgrading, are essential for us to do our job of connecting Manitoba wholesalers, manufacturers, contractors and farmers to markets across the continent. We welcome the decision to expand investment in road and bridge infrastructure across Manitoba.”
The provincial government has said it will invest in 50 new projects in 2014. They include paving, culvert replacements, grading, bridge work and spot road improvements.
Shaw adds “these small but strategic investments are a staple in a successful infrastructure program.”
