Safety Upgrades on Manitoba’s Highway 10 Completed

BRANDON, MB. — Upgrades on Manitoba’s Provincial Trunk Highway (PTH) 10, north of Brandon, were officially completed today, according to a new release by Transport Canada.

“Manitoba families, businesses and agricultural producers count on our roads and highways to get around and to do business. That’s why we’ve worked to improve Highway 10, to keep traffic flowing smoothly and safely,” said Manitoba’s Premier Greg Selinger.

The work was on a 15 kilometre stretch of the highway, and included both northbound and southbound lanes and repaving the entire roadway. Transport Canada said that safety improvements were a large part of the project:

enhancements at the intersection of the Trans-Canada Highway for safer merging;

intersection upgrades at the junction of PTH 10 and PTH 25;

three new service roads at various locations, improving overall access to the highway;

new paved shoulders;

guardrails installed at four locations; and

rumble strips placed along the paved shoulders.

“Our government is proud to invest in Highway 10, benefiting families, truckers and farmers using this essential commercial route between the Trans-Canada and Highway 25,” said Minister of State (Transport) Steven Fletcher.
