Gallant made a vague reference to twining in Miramichi in a ctv interview, probably hoping voters in Miramichi will mis-understand and think they are getting a twinned highway and thank him with their vote.

As most have stated This link is probably the real facts as its somewhat sensible:

In short, according to the article, contracting private sector to twin the highway could save money.

Here's the thing though: Hines didn't say how money will be saved. Could he be copping out?

Also, in the picture, why is 104 realigned between Exit 29A and Exit 30 when there is already a separate alignment from Highway 4? I mean, I can understand realigning 104 away from 4 but realigning 104 once again (when the area isn't even built up like Antigonish)? Why?

The minister said the plans include $1.8 million for a roundabout to be built at the intersection of routes 8, 117 and 126 as well as funding to alter the King George Highway — adding left turning lanes, for instance.

Traffic data murky as Liberals try to justify twinning Route 11

Does anybody know if government studies are available at a library? Specifically this one (TCH study) https://books.google.ca/books?id=QaB...Zc4FBDoAQgkMAA
Or this one (80’s transportation strategy)

Does anyone know if they are starting to construct the bridges needed to twin Highway 11 at Shediac Bridge and Cocagne?

Lol could it be that the government’s trying to stem emigration (if not encourage more people to settle in)?

Twinning Route 1 did nothing to stem emigration out of Charlotte County.
Twinning Route 2 did nothing to stem emigration out of Victoria/Madawaska Counties.

There's something happening politically in the fall in NB that I think might be a potential reason for the twinning...

The Legislative Library would be your best bet. The Government Documents Librarian there is brilliant.

a lot of lives have been lost on this highway and many accidents. it's time to get this twined at least to bouctouche before more accidents happen. we've been hearing about for over 10 years. let's get it done and stop using it as a political tool

Based on a quick glance, both the Saint John Main Branch and the Moncton Public Library have a copy of the first one in their respective Reference collections. Saint John also has the second one in their Reference collection. You can contact the SJ Reference Dept at 506-643-7224

Yikes. Another fatal accident on the undivided stretch of 104 from last week. (Ps: Motorcyclists are really vulnerable.) What happened to the promise to start work in April this year...
