I listen carefully to my constituents and it’s clear the Waverley Street underpass is a very important project to them and to our community.
Which is why, as your Member of Parliament for Winnipeg South Centre, I will continue working very hard to make the Waverley Street underpass a reality.
An underpass at this location would improve the flow of traffic and eliminate conflict between the daily trains and vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians. This isn’t simply about traffic but also safety concerns, increasing accessibility to area businesses and connecting families.
I met with the Minister of Infrastructure, Communities and Intergovernmental Affairs and the regional minister to make sure they are aware this is a priority infrastructure project for my community.
I have met with the mayor and local councillor on this project and will continue working with them.
I’m happy to hear that the City recognizes this project is a priority and they are at the planning stage, which will include a public consultation process. I’m grateful for this because it is important the city be ready to take advantage of the New Building Canada Fund.
