Rural Manitoba streets topped the list this year of the province’s worst roads, as voted on by those on the CAA Manitoba website.
The automobile association released its top 10 list on Thursday as part of its annual campaign. The public gathered more than 8,800 votes during the four-week drive, where votes were cast for the worst stretches of road across Manitoba, whether it be crumbling infrastructure, potholes or unsafe intersections.
“This has been a record year for Worst Roads, and the campaign clearly illustrates that Manitobans believe streets all over the province need some TLC: tender loving construction,” said Mike Mager, president and CEO of CAA Manitoba.
Streets in Carmen, Brookdale, Goodlands, Boissevain and Gillam all made the top 10. Ness Avenue, Liberty Street, Pembina Highway and St. James Street in Winnipeg also made the list.
More than 660 roads were nominated in Manitoba.
The CAA campaign also called for infrastructure to be a top priority in this spring’s provincial election.
