Vic­to­ria Vanier Stanstead

Last week, MNA Pierre Reid an­nounced that $27,668,240 would be in­vested into the roads of the Or­ford rid­ing as part of the pro­vin­cial gov­ern­ment’s eco­nomic re­cov­ery plan. The per­cent­age of Que­bec roads in good shape is pro­gress­ing and ex­pected to hit 72.2% in 2011. Re­gard­ing the trans­port depart­ment’s struc­tures, 66% are now in good shape as com­pared to 53% in 2006.

The main trans­port projects for the rid­ing will be: .9 km be­tween Ste. Cather­ine-de-Hat­ley and Sher­brooke which will get a top layer of as­phalt; new shoul­ders on the 143 be­tween Stanstead East and Stanstead; the re­con­struc­tion of a non­func­tional bridge on the Way’s Mills Road, over the Tomi­fo­bia, in Barn­ston West; an en­large­ment go­ing from 4 to 6 lanes at the Stanstead bor­der; a re­build­ing of the struc­ture above the MMA rail­way line on au­toroute 10, in Ma­gog.
