Following an evaluation of Hwy #6 South in the early 1980's, the Morriston Highway #6 By-Pass Project was presented to the MTO in 1994. To date little progress has been made despite the fact that numerous meetings by Township Councillors & local residents have been held with a succession of MTO Ministers; 22 lives have been lost; traffic congestion has grown exponentially; truck traffic has increased from 12% to 30%; growing numbers of frustrated drivers speed over rural roads to avoid Morriston/Aberfoyle traffic congestion. The 33 year delay in the construction of the realignment cries out for resolution.
By signing this petition to the Minister of Transport, you will add your voice to that of thousands, motorists & residents who are negatively impacted daily by this delay.
The chronic traffic congestion has an economic & environment impact to the region.
