Press Release – YELLOWKNIFE (June 27, 2014) – Minister of Transportation Tom Beaulieu announced today that the Government of the Northwest Territories is seeking input from Northerners to update the NWT Transportation Strategy.
“This strategy will guide planning and progress in all transportation modes over the next 25 years,” said Minister Beaulieu. “Key factors considered in the strategy will be improving the safety and efficiency of existing transportation facilities and services while making strategic improvements to promote economic development and improve community access.”
The public is encouraged to provide input by visiting the Department of Transportation’s website atwww.dot.gov.nt.ca and completing a brief online survey about the transportation system.
Over the summer, the Department will also be conducting interviews with Aboriginal leaders, transportation stakeholders and Members of the Legislative Assembly to gain their perspective on the territory’s transportation needs and priorities.
After reviewing and considering comments and suggestions, the Department will begin drafting the NWT Transportation Strategy. This will be followed by public meetings in regional centers across the NWT in late fall or early winter 2014 on the draft strategy.
