Government Injects $1.5M in Windsor-Springdale Roads

Residents of the Windsor-Springdale area will enjoy a more pleasant driving experience this summer.

The Honourable John Hickey, Minister of Transportation and Works, today announced an investment of $1.5 million for road improvements in the area as part of government�s ongoing pledge to improve transportation infrastructure throughout the province.

Government has once again pre-committed $60 million for the Provincial Roads Improvement Program in the 2007-08 budget. This early funding will allow the tendering process and construction season to begin much sooner.

�The Williams government is committed to providing an optimum transportation network in this province,� said Minister Hickey.

�This is evidenced by our recent substantial investment in the Provincial Roads Improvement Program.�

The road improvement projects planned for Windsor-Springdale are:

  • Rehabilitation of Black Brook Bridge, Route 410;
  • Resurface section of Robert�s Arm Road, Route 380;
  • Upgrade and repave section of Route 380 in Triton;
  • Upgrade and repave section of Route 380-16 in Brighton.

Ray Hunter, MHA for Windsor-Springdale, said: �I am very pleased with this year�s allocation for road improvements in my district. The funding will be instrumental in making much needed improvements to our roadways.�
