REGINA, Sask. — The outlook continues to get brighter for Saskatchewan truckers as more money has been committed to the province’s highways.

Premier Lorne Calvert’s coalition government committed to accelerating the twinning of a deadly stretch of highway during his throne speech on Tuesday.

The 25-minute, seven-page speech promised to speed up the twinning of the Trans-Canada Highway west of Gull Lake to the Alberta border by 2004, thanks to higher provincial oil and gas revenues.

“We could have the entire No. 1 twinned in half the time if we had a national highways program,” says Calvert.

Calvert was elected Monday in a by-election in former premier Roy Romanow’s old Riversdale riding.
