MTA Addresses Infrastructure Proposals
Dec 16, 2020

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.

Proposed roundabout at Trans Canada Highway & PTH 16 – In addition to communications with Manitoba Infrastructure, we have been consulting with the engineers and planners tasked with designing the roundabout project planned for the intersection of the Trans-Canada Highway and Highway #16, a few miles west of Portage la Prairie.
