WINNIPEG, MB ‘“ Wednesday November 27, 2013 ‘“ The Manitoba Trucking Association (MTA) has long maintained that at a minimum, major trade routes should be built and maintained to a higher standard.

Yesterday’s announcement to spend $200 million over the next five years to start rebuilding the southwest quadrant of the Perimeter, comes on the heels of recently announced plans from Premier Greg Selinger and Minister Steve Ashton to upgrade Highway 75, and the official opening of CentrePort Canada Way.

‘œAs each step of this upgrade is completed, the highway will become safer, more productive and more efficient as a trade route link between the US and Winnipeg, Western Manitoba and Western Canada” says MTA Executive Director Bob Dolyniuk.

The MTA supports strategic commitment and investment in the core infrastructure of our province and feels it is a wise decision that will serve our province and its citizens well for the long term.

‘œIncreased transportation corridors lead to increased options for transportation companies and frankly all road users.  This is a positive when considering commercial goods traffic efficiencies” adds Terry Shaw General Manager at the MTA.
