TORONTO, June 10 /CNW/ - The Ontario Good Roads Association (OGRA) applauds the decision by the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure Ontario to move forward with the eastern extension of Highway 407.
"This is exactly the type of long range thinking this province needs," said Joe Tiernay, Executive Director. "Minister Wynne should be congratulated on moving ahead with this important project."
The Highway 407 East Extension project will continue to provide much needed economic stimulus by creating and supporting jobs after the current round of economic stimulus funding expires. Once completed, the extended highway will represent a significant addition to the safe and efficient roadway system that Ontario and Ontario municipalities already manage.
"Comprehensive transportation networks, such as the 400-series of highways, are key factor in attracting and retaining business in a globalized world. The province is to be commended for its decision to move forward with the project," noted Paul Johnson, President, OGRA.
Ontario Good Roads Association represents the transportation and public works interests of municipalities through advocacy, consultation, training, and the delivery of identified services.
