MTA Addresses Infrastructure Proposals
- by Susan Green
The MTA is advocating on behalf of the trucking industry on a couple of significant transportation-related items in the province, including the City of Winnipeg's Master Transportation Plan and the proposed roundabout for the intersection of highways 1 and 16.
Winnipeg Master Transportation Plan - MTA representatives have participated in a number of virtual meetings with the City and its consultants, pressing for the protection of truck routes, improved safety measures, and better land-use planning that minimizes disruptions to heavy vehicles. We have also been advocating for the trucking industry as the City undertakes a review of road safety and considers ways to address the challenges posed by the Marion-Goulet corridor.
