We are lobbying the Ministry of Transportation (MTO) for paved shoulers on Hwy 551, between Hwy 540 in M’Chigeeng andd Hwy 542 in Mindemoya. This short 12km stretch of road connects many communities on the Island.
Our request will be to the Minister of Transportation to follow up and implement one of the suggestions we included in a survey held by MTO in 2011.
Our rationale for this valuable infrastructure project includes the benefits derived from linking communities to each other, promoting active lifestyles and healthy modes of transportation, improving access to local economic hubs, and increasing road longevity. Click here for full rationale.
