OTA Lauds Govt of Ontario’s Signal to Move Forward on Bradford Bypass    

The Ontario Trucking Association was invited by the Ford Government to hear an announcement to move forward with the Bradford Bypass.

Ontario Premier Doug Ford made the announcement alongside Transportation Minister Caroline Mulroney, OTA president Laskowski and VP of Policy Geoff Wood in Bradford today.

“The addition of this key infrastructure link is vital for the province,” Laskowski said. “The project will support both short-term and future economic recovery, address capacity issues, reduce congestion on existing regional and municipal roads between Highway 400 and Highway 404; and promote the enhanced movement of goods and people along Ontario highways and strategic trade corridors.”

Essentially, the highway – which will serve as a major freeway-to-freeway connector between Northern, Central and Southern Ontario – will have a positive impact by supporting and providing relief for the supply chains of across the province, which have been under stress since the start of the pandemic.

“It allows the trucking industry to better serve businesses in York Region and Simcoe County and more efficiently provide the goods and products those businesses, their employees and residents need to thrive.

“OTA cannot stress enough how important this effort is to our industry and economic recovery of Ontario This investment by the province will pay dividends for decades to come.”
