Paving the way to a better economy Department of Transportation
Department of Transportation

More than 500 projects across Alberta will enhance and expand roads and bridges and support water management infrastructure. The wide-ranging work will improve connections between communities, promote safer travel, increase flood mitigation and strengthen key economic corridors.

Minister of transportation Brian Mason says, “We are continuing to make significant investments in the transportation needs of this province. Our goal is to ensure Albertans are able to get from one place to another in a safe and efficient way. Through this construction season, I ask motorists for their understanding and patience if there are inconveniences in their travels.”

The province is investing more than $6 billion over five years to build transportation and water infrastructure, which will support an estimated 18,000 jobs and ensure Alberta’s economic recovery is built to last.
With construction underway on many projects across Alberta, and many more to come, road users are reminded that safety is a shared responsibility. It is important to drive safely, obey speed limits and all road signals, and watch for workers in construction zones.



Budget keeps us on track

Saskatchewan Highways & Infrastructure

The 2018-19 provincial budget keeps Saskatchewan on track. This year, the Government of Saskatchewan is investing $924.5 million into highways and infrastructure for projects committed to improving safety on some of the provinces busiest highways.

“This year’s highway and infrastructure budget is a great example of our government’s commitment to keeping our economy strong while improving the quality of life for Saskatchewan people.” Highways and Infrastructure Minister David Marit said. “A decade of growth has seen more people using our highways, increased truck traffic and new demands on provincial highways. As a result, we are taking steps to improve safety on several key corridors.”

Connecting people, families and communities – safely
Manitoba Infrastructure

Manitoba’s highway network plays a strategic role in connecting the provincial economy to world markets. It is also vitally important for connecting people, families and communities. That’s why Manitoba Infrastructure (MI) is focused on improving road safety for all users.

Our department is working with stakeholders across the province to make our highways safer for all. Together, we have created Manitoba’s road safety plan, Road to Zero (https://www.mpi.mb.ca/en/PDFs/Road-To-Zero.pdf). The guiding principle is that it is unacceptable for anyone to be killed, or seriously injured, when travelling our roads. There are many components to this strategy and I encourage the staff of our partner trucking companies to read the plan and see how you might be able to contribute to the effort.

Under the Road to Zero strategy, we are working on several projects and initiatives to improve highway safety in Manitoba.
