Our road conditions are shameful. In the past few years, we have driven though much of Canada and parts of the US but none of the road conditions were as bad as our home province. The people of this province deserve better. As well, for a government that spends so much money on promoting tourism, someone should at least think about what poor driving conditions those tourists have to travel over.

The program of repairing and up-keeping of public infrastructure, especially roads and bridges is deplorable and sadly lacking in this province-probably the worst in the country. The commitment of money for a single large grey elephant project is likely the reason. The roads and bridges with the big bumps are unsafe and takes a toll on travellers and the vehicles-the moose are a minor nuisance in comparison. There are bump signs everywhere and some are in place for years with no repairs being attempted. You can look at the Outer Ring Road, the Harbour arterial. The TCH, veterans highway, commonwealth avenue, its everywhere. At the same time, to commit to spend $ 30 million to provide a bridge with a lift feature at Placentia is irresponsible. The Works, Services and Transportation Department should be renamed to Shoddy Works, Lacking Services and Deplorable Transportation. Why would Tourists come here to face those conditions????????
