CALGARY, Alta. — A Calgary alderman is drafting a motion that would prevent trucks hauling hazardous materials from using Macleod Trail.
Ald. Ric McIver recently told city council he is drafting a motion to review hazardous goods routes in the south end of the city, the Calgary Sun reports. Now that the Deerfoot extension to Hwy. 2 is complete, he says it is a safer path for dangerous goods.
“It could be that we don’t need to allow dangerous goods down Macleod Tr. anymore,” McIver said. “It’s a very congested road and lots of places on it are close to residential areas – it’s closer to development than Deerfoot Tr., in case an incident happens.”
