Trucking association, heavy construction industry call upon election candidates to #FixOurRoads

Manitobans will start seeing prominent decals affixed to trucking trailers now and into the coming months, in a public advocacy campaign aimed at candidates in the October 26 municipal vote, and also the expected provincial election next year.

The Manitoba Trucking Association is providing the decals to members as part of an effort to draw public attention – and political response – to the need to Fix Our Roads.

The MTA is working with the Manitoba Heavy Construction Association on the campaign, which encourages people to Vote to Fix Our Roads, underscoring the need for the municipal and provincial governments to make transportation infrastructure investment a priority.

“Road Infrastructure investment is a priority of our membership. We want to make infrastructure a priority in the upcoming civic and provincial elections,” said Aaron Dolyniuk, Executive Director of the MTA.

Among the first to affix the decal to company trailers was Jason Dubois, President of Len Dubois Trucking and President of the MTA. (see attached photo.)

“Our members know the condition of the highways and city streets intimately and investing in our roads allows our industry to keep the economy moving more safely and efficiently,” Dubois said.

Chris Lorenc, President of the Manitoba Heavy Construction Association, said Manitobans saw stark illustration this spring of what happens when poorly maintained roads are under stress from harsh weather conditions.

“Roads that are not well-maintained cost everyone – businesses and all taxpayers – much more, in the end and not just due to vehicle repairs,” Lorenc noted. “Roads that are not maintained must be rebuilt that much earlier at greater cost.”

The MTA and MHCA are calling upon all voters to make their frustrations with bad roads known to all election campaigners this and next year.
