Projects in the RMs of Cartier, Headingley and Macdonald are included in the $1.6 million total to be spent improving municipal roads, Municipal Government Minister Stan Struthers announced on Dec. 13.

Work on Alinson Road, drainage repairs and slope rehabilitation are slated for the RM of Cartier. Improvements on Roblin Boulevard and road rehabilitation were listed for the RM of Headingley, with work on Kingswood Crescent and road rehabilitation scheduled for the RM of Macdonald.

"Good roads are the arteries of a healthy economy and must be continually maintained and improved to help businesses in our communities thrive and grow with good jobs for our young people at home," Struthers said in a release. "This funding is directed at the roads Manitobans have prioritized and reflects our government’s commitment to support economic growth in the strong communities in this region."

Twenty-five central Manitoba communities identified 33 roads requiring replacement or repairs that will receive provincial funding, Struthers said. Across the province, the Manitoba government will upgrade 260 kilometres of municipal roads by investing $21 million, with municipal governments matching that investment.  

"Today’s announcement is a good example of municipalities and the province working together," Doug Dobrowolski,

Association of Manitoba Municipalities president and RM of Macdonald councillor said in the release. "Investing in core infrastructure like roads and water projects helps make our communities economically viable, which in turn makes Manitoba stronger."
