Canola Highway Reaches Second Stage


REGINA, Sask.— The second stage of the government’s $21-million highway route, designed to speed the delivery of canola to crushing facilities, was unveiled Monday, CBC reports.

“The corridor will allow more trucks delivering canola to access crushing facilities without the need to travel through the city,” said Jim Reiter, minister of Highways and Infrastructure, speaking of the new north-south highway that is intended to support the two $190-million canola-crushing plants, a project announced in 2006.

Phase one of the redevelopment is already underway; construction on the truck route is expected to begin next year, according to Reiter.
