Highways and Transportation
The Saskatchewan Party government has invested $9.8 billion into highways since 2007 and improved more than 18,500 kilometres of roads.
Since 2007, the Saskatchewan Party government has invested in and completed significant projects including:
- Regina Bypass ($1.88 billion);
- Gordie Howe Bridge ($294.7 million);
- Martensville and Warman Overpasses ($60.6 million);
- Highway 16 twinning east of Saskatoon ($52.4 million);
- Highway 7 twinning from Saskatoon to Delisle ($66 million);
Highway 39 twinning from Estevan to Bienfait ($27 million);
- and Estevan Truck Bypass. ($46 million).
We are in the second year of a five year $65 million Enhanced Intersection Safety Program in addition to a
$7 million Safety Improvement Program. These programs have funded over 700 sight triangle improvements, new guard rails, rumble strips and lighting. Preliminary data from SGI showed a 75% reduction in collisions on Highway 1 east since the Regina Bypass opened. SGI reported that fewer people were killed on Saskatchewan roads in 2019 than in any single year since records started being kept.
As part of the $2 billion economic booster shot to help Saskatcheawn's economy recover from the global pandemic, more than $300 million has been committed to highways stimulus funds. These investments will include:
- Upgrades to 325 km of thin-membrane surface highway;
- Rehabilitation of at least 100 RM roads when combined with our existing municipal roads program; and
- Improvements to community airports.
These investments into our province's highways are part of the 10-year Growth Plan which made a commitment to build and upgrade 10,000 kilometres of highways.
The Saskatchewan Party remains committed to investing in important infrastructure projects to support the priorities of citizens, like yourself. We have strong track record of building infrastructure and the Saskatchewan Party will continue to build on this track record.
