New Minister of Transportation promising past performance will be a factor in renewal talks for highway maintenance contracts.
With renewal talks set to begin next year, Clare Trevena admits she has heard a lot of concerns, especially in the southern interior.
"I hear endless stories about bad maintenance. Whether its roads not being plowed, brushing not done, whatever it is, I've heard complaints about contractors. So, I have asked the ministry to look at past performance, which will be taken into account."
Back in 2016, a group calling for improved winter highway maintenance in the Nicola Service area collected over 2.500 signatures demanding improvement from VSA Highway Maintenance.
