Altona Town Council wants to reduce the speed limit along Highway 30, north of 14th Avenue Northeast.


The intersection at 14th Avenue is being used as a main route for trucks accessing the Bunge Canada plant off Highway 30.

C.A.O. Russ Phillips says council has requested Manitoba Highways reduce the speed in an effort to create a safer situation for motorists.

He notes they have written a letter to the Province to make them aware of the situation.

The intersection is scheduled to be expanded next year as part of a Canada-Manitoba infrastructure project.

The plan is to widen the intersection by adding a turning lane and a passing lane.
