OGCA Urges Focus on Roads and Sewers

Posted by: Skylar In: news

According to the Daily Commercial News, the Ontario General Contractors Association president (OGCA) Clive Thurston claimed that the Ontario government needs to expand it’s spending to include more road and sewer projects. According to the article,

“Recent efforts have focused mainly on the health sector, hospitals in particular,” he told the provincial government’s standing committee on government agencies. “Nevertheless, infrastructure is more than just hospitals or buildings.


“It is clear that the same efforts that have been made to bring the hospital sector up must be applied to highways, roads, bridges and water and wastewater systems.”

Combined with the government’s recent additional spending on infrastructure, and it looks like it’ll be a busy year in the road and sewer industry!
