Thunder Bay Roads and Infrastructure Issues Key with Pullia and Ch’ng
Thunder Bay City Councillors Shelby Ch’ng and Frank Pullia have been hearing from a lot of residents about roads and infrastructure. The two Councillors went out with a City Road Crew and met with management recently to get the real scoop on what is going on with the roads, how to get the best value for hard earned tax dollars, and how to get potholes reported and fixed.
Fixing the roads has been an effort that the City of Thunder Bay has been investing a lot of money. The expenditure of $12 million has been made toward upgrading and repairing roads.
There have been concerns raised on how long our roads last, on the paint on the lines on the roads, and on potholes on our roads.
That was the impetus for the two Councillors to get out with City Road Crews to see first hand what happens to repair potholes, and see what the process is for fixing roads.
Northwood Councillor Ch’ng has been working as a new member of Council to get a handle on all the issues facing Councillors and the City. In Northwood, infrastructure, including roads, sewers, and soccer fields have been of concern to residents in the ward.
Call 625-2195 – 24 hours a day are report a pothole. The average turn-around time to repair it is less than two working days.
Online you can also report a pothole. Visit Pothole Reporting on the City Website.
Councillor Ch’ng commented that simply reporting a pothole on a Facebook page isn’t likely to help. The City page, or the Pothole hotline mean the information gets to the people it needs to and can result in the pothole being fixed.
