APTA Cautious About Increased Tolling in Nova Scotia

June 29, 2015 by sehui

Dieppe, NB – One trucking group is open to a plan by the Nova Scotia government to speed up construction along what it said are some of the province’s “most dangerous sections of highway” but it’s not wild about seeing increased highway tolls.The sentiment from the Atlantic Provinces Trucking Association (APTA) follows the government asking for proposals to conduct a feasibility study for the twinning and tolling at eight specific sections of four major highways, with the belief the additional funding could speed up the pace of roadway expansions.
The association said the government’s commitment to undertake a study on how to twin sections of parts of 100 series highways more quickly is a good approach, provided the government goes into the study with an open mind about its current revenues from fuel taxes and how they should be spent.
