QUEEN’S PARK – Taras Natyshak, NDP MPP for Essex, has released the following statement in response to Transportation Minister’s regional transportation plan that lists the widening of Highway 3 from Essex to Leamington as only 13th on the list of priorities.
“You can’t widen a dangerous highway with re-announcements. Essex County drivers were fed a steady diet of promises and announcements on the widening of Highway 3 from the Liberals, and now we’re getting more of the same from Doug Ford. The people of Essex County deserve funding, timelines, and shovels in the ground — not more draft reports. Our NDP team will not stop fighting for Highway 3 until people are driving on the finished, new and improved roads.”
