Saskatchewan's rural politicians want province to help improve road to success

SASKATOON - Rural politicians in Saskatchewan want millions of extra dollars from the provincial government to improve roads battered and bruised by an economic boom.

The Saskatchewan Association of Rural Municipalities says roads are taking the brunt of year-round heavy truck traffic in the energy, potash and agriculture sectors.

The association is seeking $160 million in additional government funding over four years as part of a partnership to upgrade transportation infrastructure.

David Marit (MAHR'-iht), president of SARM, says a reliable road network will be needed if industry is to continue to grow and make Saskatchewan competitive globally.

SARM and its counterpart, the Saskatchewan Urban Municipalities Association, have scheduled meetings later this month to discuss infrastructure improvements.

SARM delegates have gathered this week for a convention in Saskatoon. (CKOM)
