REGINA, Sask. — Highways and Transportation Minister, Pat Atkinson, visited road crews yesterday to see for herself how the twinning of Hwy. 16 is going — and she’s pleased with what’s going on.

“We are on track for opening this new twinned section at the end of August,” says Atkinson. “The grading contractor is nearing completion and surfacing is well under way. Twinning this section on Highway 16 will increase driver comfort and safety for travellers.”

Meanwhile, an additional 16-kilometre stretch of the Trans-Canada Highway (a potion of the Yellowhead Highway) between Maidstone and Lashburn is being twinned as well, in an effort to improve safety on one of Saskatchewan’s busiest arteries. The cost of twinning that stretch is pegged at $10 million.
