Nova Scotians Divided on Toll Highways
HALIFAX: Nova Scotia residents are divided on the addition of toll highways in the province, according to the most recent survey conducted by Corporate Research Associates Inc. Recent accidents on Highway 104 have led to increased public concern of the safety of Nova Scotia highways and calls to twin portions of Nova Scotia highways. The Nova Scotia Transportation Minister however has said that twinning some Nova Scotia highways is ‘very expensive and takes many years to plan and construct.’ Results indicate under one-half (47%) of Nova Scotia residents support toll highways, while a similar number (51%) oppose. Meanwhile, two percent do not know or do not offer an opinion on the matter.
