But in meetings with cabinet ministers, Bigger says Tories want to work with Sudbury
Greater Sudbury Mayor Brian Bigger said Thursday he hasn’t yet discussed the future of four-laning of Highway 69 with the provincial government.
As first reported by Sudbury.com, spending on the project is frozen while the Progressive Conservative government conducts a “line-by-line” review of infrastructure spending commitments made by the previous Liberal government.
Long a priority for the City of Greater Sudbury, work has gone on for decades four-laning the road connecting Sudbury and Toronto. About $850 million has been spent since 2003, expanding 132 kilometres of the roadway.
