The Mayor of Steinbach says he is pleased to see the province take action on a busy intersection.

Manitoba's Infrastructure Minister announced Monday morning that traffic lights will go up along Highway 52 at Industrial Road. The project will go to tender shortly and the lights are expected to be operational by next spring.

"Certainly we have to give a lot of credit to our local MLA, Minister Kelvin Goertzen for pushing this and we're pleased to see that," says Steinbach Mayor Chris Goertzen. "It's going to be safer, it's going to hopefully run efficiently and it's part of a growing city."

Goertzen says for the last two years, this has topped the list for the intersection most in need of improvements in Steinbach. He notes there are a lot of collisions there.

"We use clear evidence to base our request for this," explains Goertzen. "We see that the province is responding to logical arguments that we've made and put forward and we're pleased to see them taking action."

The province has announced it will fund the entire cost of the project and Goertzen says that only makes sense, as the intersection is along a provincial road.

"To see that the province is taking their responsibility seriously is a good thing," he says. "We continue to work together with them to identify areas that need improvement and partner with them in these areas that we deem appropriate."

Following Monday's announcement, Steinbach MLA Kelvin Goertzen suggested that it probably wouldn't take long for the city of Steinbach to come up with a new priority intersection. Mayor Chris Goertzen says though there are a number of intersections they are monitoring, the one at Highway 12 and Loewen Boulevard needs attention.

"It will be fairly major improvements that we'll need to work on there," says the Mayor. "We'll continue to monitor all intersections that we have on our radar screen and make sure that we have the right information to forward that to the province and also partner with them if and when we deem it appropriate."
