Hello Premier Brad Wall and Minister of Highways Don McMorris.
Our "Time To Twin Highways # 39 and #6 Committee" is extremely saddened to hear of the tragic death of Ashley Dawn Richards on Highway 39 last Friday near Midale.
What we want investigated are the comments from a member or members of the HJR Asphalt Company. We have been told that their comments were as follows: "Highway No. 39 is the most dangerous highway they have worked on in the past 25 years."
Our committee has spent the last three years trying to emphasize that exact point to our Saskatchewan government.
We live here, we drive that highway, our friends and family have to drive that highway.
We have seen too many tragic accidents and deaths on the roads between North Portal and Regina.
Please.... do the right thing and present Highways No. 39 and No. 6 from North Portal to Regina, as the next highways, in Saskatchewan, to be completely twinned, with no use of passing lanes.
The traffic is too fast and dangerous.
There is too much oilfield and semi traffic to make passing lanes anything but a very dangerous choice for these roads, all to save some money.
Thank you for you time and attention.
Time to Twin committee chair
