Roadbuilders Claim The Public Is On Their Side

A new poll released by New Brunswick roadbuilders that shows only 13 per cent of people surveyed agree with the current policy of limiting spending on highway maintenance and 90 per cent say making the roads and highways better should be a government priority. 

The Executive Director of the Roadbuilders Association Tom McGinn tells CHSJ News if the province doesn't start spending more now to maintain the roads, it will cost a lot more money a few years down the road. 

McGinn is warning there's a danger some roads may eventually have to be closed although he admits there are some people in government who believe there are too many roads in the province which cost money to service. 

The poll was commissioned by the roadbuilders and conducted by Corporate Research Associates.
