The province plans to expedite construction of a 14-kilometre Headingley bypass from CentrePort Canada Way.

Currently about 19,000 vehicles a day pass through Headlingley at 70 km/h. The bypass will create a much safer traffic environment and allow the heavy traffic load, including intense truck traffic, to travel at higher speeds, officials said Monday.

Preliminary engineering has been done for the estimated $150 million project, but more accurate cost estimates will be available when detailed designs are in place.

Steve Ashton, Manitoba's minister of Infrastructure and Transportation said the province is confident that construction can begin within five years.

Federal funding will be sought through the Building Canada Fund.

The extension was always imagined as part of CentrePort Canada Way, a 9.1 kilometre highway opened in November that connects the west Perimeter Highway to Inkster Boulevard.
