Looking for accountability on state of TCH
The Trans Canada Highway is in very serious need of repairs. Particularly I mention the drive from St.John’s to Bay Roberts. The highway is not much better than those in third world countries I feel at times.
The deep ruts, the potholes, the ragged shoulders make for treacherous driving any day of the week but are particularly dangerous dur- ing foggy or rainy days.
I think the contractors (the government has records of them) who laid down this pavement (if it can be called that) should be held accountable for such low class workmanship. Make them re-pave at their own expense.
During highway construction and paving isn’t there someone who monitors the quality of the materials being used and the pre-paving work that must be up to scratch before the black stuff is laid?
Whoever is at fault, we the motoring public are the ones losing out in more ways than one — the worst of which is danger to our lives every time we venture out over the TCH.
