Evening and Weekend Construction in Winnipeg
The average motorist spends hours waiting in long construction lines costing our economy and residents thousands of hours in lost economic productivity. Speedier construction and less traffic congestion on our streets would have a positive impact on the environment as it relates to emissions. The City of Winnipeg Noise By-Law allows for work from 8AM-10PM and thus should be respected and off-peak hour construction should be only initiated on major and regional traffic corridors; The use of evening and weekend construction is already used in cities such as Edmonton, Calgary, Saskatoon, Regina, Grand Forks, all over the United States and the world, which in turn, has helped to reduce traffic congestion in their respective cities. In signing this petition you agree that the City of Winnipeg should allow evening and weekend construction to speed up construction.
