MLA Report (30 July 2010)
Local Highway Improvements Slated
When I was first elected to represent the people of this wonderful constituency in 2007, I identified the three most urgent infrastructure needs in this constituency as being: 1) a municipal water infrastructure system in Hepburn; 2) a new middle-years school in Warman; and 3) an improved access road for Dalmeny.
With last month’s release of the updated five-year highway construction plan, I am very pleased to see that now all three most-needed projects in this constituency are either underway or will be shortly.
Hepburn’s water infrastructure system is currently in construction with lines being laid this summer with an eye to completion towards the end of next year. The new school for Warman was announced this spring and design plans are underway. The release of funds for school design also allows more work to proceed on the Sports & Cultural Village in Warman as that project is linked to the gymnasium for the new school.
The new five-year highway construction plan includes several projects that will greatly improve transportation in the Warman, Martensville and Dalmeny areas. The access road (number 684) between Dalmeny and Highway 16 will be rebuilt. Also, Highway 305 between Highway 11 and Highway 16 will be reconstructed along a new route. Lastly, a paved access road from Lutheran Road into Martensville will improve the ease and safety of traffic flow between Saskatoon and Martensville.
After years of neglect under the NDP, it is refreshing to see these projects in this constituency going forward – making what is already the best constituency in this province an even better place to live and work.
