WHITE CITY, Sask. - The Saskatchewan New Democrats are on the road again with an election promise to build a new highway interchange on the TransCanada east of Regina.

Leader Dwain Lingenfelter (LING'-ehn-felt-ehr) says an interchange for White City, Emerald Park and Pilot Butte is needed because the area near the capital city is growing.

He says economic development and driver safety would be enhanced by the interchange.

The NDP says it's part of a commitment of $200 million in new funding for provincial highways and transportation if the party is elected Monday.

But the Saskatchewan Party says the New Democrats has promised four major highway projects that they haven't costed out.

Sask. Party candidate Bill Boyd argues the NDP is also counting on federal money that is not in place.
