What’s Your Worst Road?

 

April 8, 2015 – Saint John, N.B. – CAA (Atlantic) is asking Atlantic Canadians to have their say on the region’s Worst Roads. The fifth annual Worst Roads campaign launched last week, and more than 2,200 votes have already been cast. The campaign is running through to April 17, 2015.

To date the top ten leading Worst Roads in the region are:

  1. Gillis Point Road (Washabuck Centre, N.S.)
  2. Charters Settlement Road (Charters Settlement, N.B.)
  3. Marble Mountain Road (River Denys, N.S.)
  4. New Brunswick 616 (Keswick Ridge, N.B.)
  5. Markland Road (Whitbourne, N.L.)
  6. New Brunswick 105 (Mactaquac, N.B.)
  7. Highway 434 (Conche, N.L.)
  8. Black River Road (River John, N.S.)
  9. Fisher Street (Port aux Choix, N.L.)
  10. Avondale Access Road (Avondale, N.L.)

 

Roads and driving safety is a priority for CAA Atlantic. Poor road conditions affect us all through increased vehicle repair costs, insurance claims, work compensation, healthcare costs and precious time and energy wasted in traffic congestion.

Every road in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and Newfoundland and Labrador is eligible to be named a Worst Road and the campaign is open to the public. Votes can be submitted using the CAA App, through the CAA Atlantic Facebook page, or online at www.atlantic.caa.ca/worstroads.
