INDIAN HEAD, Sask. — Saskatchewan Premier Lorne Calvert and comrades visited the Hwy. 1 twinning project as part of the premier’s "Listening Tour."

Calvert, and several other cabinet ministers including Highways and Transportation Minister Pat Atkinson, wanted to see the project first hand to check up on its progress.

The $11.4 million surfacing project is currently under way on 33 kilometres of twined lanes between Indian Head and Wolseley.

Calvert liked what he saw, noting that "This will be a major achievement for our government as we are improving safety for travellers on Hwy. 1 east. Our government committed to twinning our portion of the National Highway System and it’s exciting to see so much highway construction out here today as these commitments become a reality."
