The deputy warden of Antigonish Co. says residents in his district aren’t happy with the state of one of their roads.
Hughie Stewart, the county’s district three councillor, says more than 100 people have signed a petition regarding the Pinevale Rd.
Councillors passed a motion to send a letter in support of the petition to provincial officials at Tuesday night’s regular municipal council meeting.
After the meeting, Stewart said there’s a lot of traffic on the road and it needs to be kept in better shape.
“The first two kilometres, they chip-sealed it- the rest of the road, the other 12 kilometres is gravel road; I call it ‘mud road’,” he said. “It’s a very difficult time having it maintained- it always seems to be a contentious issue and people are tired of it.”
Stewart said there was some work done to the road last year, but it didn’t solve the problem.
He said none of the municipality’s gravel roads are getting the service they need.
