Calling for better winter road maintenance on the remainder of Highway 19A.


Whereas it is critical that roads on PEI be safe to travel for all Islanders;

And whereas many Islanders who live in the South Shore area travel on Highway 19A to get to work and school;

And whereas the initial portion of Highway 19A from West River to Long Creek is cleared with a Government vehicle “combination truck” that has the capability to both plow snow and spread sand/salt until the portion of Highway 19A turns into Highway 9 at the Long Creek intersection;

And whereas the Government plow is not completing the 3 km stretch of Highway 19A between Long Creek and Canoe Cove;

And whereas winter conditions on the above mentioned 3 km stretch of Highway 19A is treacherous in ways that other adjacent sections of road are not;

And whereas numerous residents of this area have lodged repeated complaints with the Department of Highways over many years;

We hereby petition the Legislative Assembly of Prince Edward Island to strongly encourage the Department of Transportation, Infrastructure and Energy to continue to clear the remainder of Highway 19A using Government vehicles; in particular, a combination truck as opposed to contracting out this section of Highway 19A.
