WINNIPEG — A new service road in the RM of Headingley will replace a direct link to the South Perimeter Highway as part of the province’s plan to improve safety along the bypass.

The new $2.5 million Rockall Road will result in the closures of two direct access points from Caron Road to the Perimeter Highway. One access point has already been closed and the other will close once Rockall Road has been constructed.

“Our government has made a commitment to improve road safety and this investment will enhance safe and reliable access onto the Perimeter Highway for decades to come,” said Infrastructure Minister Ron Schuler. “This project not only supports the South Perimeter Safety Plan but also offers economic development opportunities for the RM of Headingley.”

Schuler says the municipality will oversee project management and delivery of the project, and will have full ownership of Rockall Road from Roblin Boulevard to Wilkes Avenue once complete.
