Transportation Week Proclaimed in Saskatchewan

Released on June 1, 2015

The week of May 31 to June 6 has been officially proclaimed Saskatchewan Transportation Week.  This annual event recognizes the contributions of individuals in the transportation industry.

“Safe and efficient transportation infrastructure is key to the continued growth of Saskatchewan’s population and economy,” Highways and Infrastructure Minister Nancy Heppner said.  “This week we celebrate the contributions of people working in this important industry.”

“This week’s events recognize some of the thousands of individuals who get product and people moved to the right place, at the right price, at the right time,” Saskatoon Transportation Club Cheryl Starnes said.  “We ask everyone in our great province to take time this week to recognize all Saskatchewan logistic professionals - the people that make our economy move.”

This year’s Highways and Infrastructure budget is a record $842 million, including $560 million for capital construction.

The Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure is responsible for 26,000 kilometres of provincial highways, regulating 2,004 kilometres of shortline railway, 17 northern airports, 12 ferries and one barge.

The government has invested a record $5.2 billion in transportation infrastructure since 2008.
