Town councillors in Mulgrave are frustrated with road conditions in the area.
Bob Russell says ships come in with salt, trucks get loaded at the town wharf (and) then they’re traveling on highways in the town.
He says transporting rock is another concern and trucks are overloaded.
After Monday night’s town council meeting, Russell told The Hawk they can’t keep up with the maintenance.
“This past summer, they patched as much as they could- that’s on the town’s dollar,” he said. “That whole road from one end of town all the way out to the highway needs to be replaced, it needs to be resurfaced; they’ve resurfaced down the shore, but Mulgrave gets forgotten about (and) they say that it’s the town’s problem.”
Russell said there should be assistance from provincial officials.
“They say that it’s the town’s problem- it’s a highway, it’s Hwy. 344; it goes through town,” he said. “We call it Main St. but it’s Hwy. 344; why isn’t the province at least making an attempt to try and help us with it- they know what’s going on with the town.”
He said provincial officials know what’s going on with the town, and they’re limited for money.
