Infrastructure and Transportation Minister Ron Lemieux received the recommendations of the 2020 – Manitoba’s Transport Vision report from 2020 Steering Committee chair Daryl Reid, MLA for Transcona on July 14, 2005.
A major theme of the report, drawn from the public consultation process, includes the need for increased funding to maintain and expand existing infrastructure.
The Manitoba government has undertaken a number of initiatives since 1999 to address infrastructure needs in Manitoba. Based on the information provided by Manitobans in the 2020 report, the government will continue to build on its solid record of increasing investments to meet the needs of the province’s transportation network.
The report and recommendations will be examined in more detail in order to provide further positive commitment of resources and long-term strategic planning to protect the transportation system’s role in Manitoba’s economy. The government will also be seeking more suggestions and feedback as it moves forward. See report below.
