Without having a grass median in between opposing lanes, it doesn't leave anywhere for excess rocks and debris to go. Not to mention the center median (in areas that even have one) has no space between it, and the lanes. Everything is so crammed together. Its not uncommon to be driving on a highway in BC and have a semi trailer pass you while literally spraying rocks at your car like a machine gun. Makes me cringe

Totally true. I had a rock fall out of a dump truck once that left a massive crack in my windshield. Had there been a real divided highway, it would have merely fell into the median.

Apparently the new sections of the 401 are not real divided highways. Who knew?

Actually, most of the 400 series highways that are over 4 lanes are in the same thinking...

For Manitobans:
If the government is to twin Highway 1 east of Falcan Lake, what's the problem with using PR 301 as the new eastbound lanes, and the current route of HWY 1 as westbound lanes?
Lol, from the map, that part of HWY 1 looks twinned until one zooms in.
