WINNIPEG – Infrastructure minister Ron Schuler has announced the start of construction on a new service road that’ll link Waverley Street to Brady Road.

“Our government committed to addressing the significant safety concerns at Brady Road and the South Perimeter Highway,” said Schuler. “The new service road will greatly improve traffic safety and flow for thousands of drivers who pass through the area on the South Perimeter and hundreds who use the South Perimeter to access the Brady Road Landfill daily.”

The province is naming the road Ethan Boyer Way to honour a 19 year old who was killed in a collision on the Perimeter at Brady Road on last October 25th.

Last November, the province implemented a speed reduction to 80 kilometres per hour from 100 surrounding the intersection to address immediate safety concerns.
