Residents of Western Newfoundland and Labrador to benefit from better, safer roads

Stephenville, Newfoundland and Labrador —The governments of Canada and Newfoundland and Labrador recognize that strategic investments in modern and efficient roadways are crucial to encouraging and supporting economic activity, facilitating trade, and creating well-paying, middle class jobs.
Gudie Hutchings, Member of Parliament for Long Range Mountains, on behalf of the Honourable François-Philippe Champagne, Minister of Infrastructure and Communities; John Finn, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Health and Community Services, Newfoundland and Labrador, on behalf of the Honourable Graham Letto, Minister of Municipal Affairs and Environment; and Tom Rose, Mayor of the town of Stephenville, today announced more than $426,000 in joint support for two road improvement projects in Western Newfoundland and Labrador.
Work includes improving high-traffic roads in Rose Blanche-Harbour le Cou to provide safer and smoother driving conditions. The Town of Stephenville will benefit from new traffic lights at the intersection of Queen Street, Minnesota Drive, and Prince Rupert Drive.
These improvements not only mean safer roads, fewer accidents and reduced traffic congestion, but they also support the continued economic growth of the region and the efficient transportation of goods across the province.
