"BUILD THE BARRIER" TOWN HALL TAKING PLACE WEDNESDAY NIGHT 2/7/2018 4:53:45 AM
Elgin - Middlesex - London MPP Jeff Yurek is holding "Build the Barrier" town hall meeting tomorrow night (February 7). The meeting is regarding a section of the 401 between Elgin County and Chatham Kent that does not have a concrete barrier.
The section of the highway is being referred to by some in Chatham Kent as "carnage alley."
Yurek says he thinks that this section of the highway should be up to the same safety standards as the rest of the highway.
Yurek says that currently the Ministry of Transportation is proposing that cable barriers be installed which Yurek says are not strong enough to withstand the force of larger trucks.
The meeting is taking place at 7112 Beattie Street in London at 7 p.m.
