The province has installed rumble strips on a stretch of Manitoba highway where a fatal crash occurred in June.
Fifteen seniors died in the crash at the intersection of the Trans-Canada Highway and Highway 5 near Carberry earlier this summer. Two more people later died in hospital.
Three people were seriously injured in a separate crash at the same intersection on July 31.
Manitoba Transportation and Infrastructure has since installed the rumble strips and painted new lines at the intersection. The addition is a series of raised strips along the road’s edge that alert a driver if they have swayed too far from their lane.
Increased signage is also planned for the roadway in the future.
A safety review of the busy intersection is underway and is expected to be completed by the fall.
