Quebec Trans-Canada fixes nice, but APTA wants twinning instead

DIEPPE, N.B. — The new executive director of the Atlantic Provinces Trucking Association says that while he appreciates yesterday’s announcement between Quebec and New Brunswick to upgrade portions of the Trans Canada and Route 20, he would like to see La belle Province to make a stronger commitment to twinning its share of the major highway.

“A solid commitment for twinning to match the quality of the New Brunswick portion of the TCH is much preferred,” stated Peter Nelson. “Premiers Lord and Charest reiterated the point that N.B. exports more goods to Quebec than any other province or the other three Atlantic Provinces combined.

“New Brunswick is making great strides in improving the quality of its section of the TCH, and the APTA encourages the Lord Government to continue the initiative to have Quebec get on board and twin that section of highway so as to alleviate the bottleneck and lessen hazards to all who travel that section of highway.”
