While maintaining highways and bridges is the top priority for transportation the reliability of the Castlegar and Trail airports also remains a major issue.
That’s the feedback given by our region in helping form the final report for the Province’s ten-year Transportation Plan.
The government will invest $2.5 billion in transport in the next decade.
$24 million will be provided over three years to improve community airports.
Meanwhile $800 million is slated to maintain existing highways and there’ll be $1 billion for expansion.
However there are no specific projects listed in the plan for the West Kootenay.
