Highway 3 Twinning Development Association administration is thrilled to have the support of the Alberta Government for Twinning the remaining sections of Hwy 3 in the next 10 years

“Highway 3 Twinning Development Association is thrilled that the Government of Alberta sees the importance of this corridor for provincial, national, and international trade. As a primary route for the transport of goods and services, the twinning of Highway 3 is vital for our communities in industry, agri-business, recreation and tourism. The most efficient and safest route is a twinned route!” says Bill Chapman, President of the Highway 3 Twinning Development Association and Councillor with the Town of Coaldale.

“With recent investments in expanding irrigation, with investments into the agri-food market surging, and with southern Alberta’s growing importance as a global destination for new energy developments, the need to twin Highway 3 has never been greater. We are very pleased that the Government of Alberta continues to recognize this need and is taking steps to make a fully twinned Highway 3 a reality.” says Peter Casurella, Board of Director with Highway 3 Twinning Development Association, and Executive Director, SouthGrow Regional Economic Development.

“It is great to see the Government of Alberta recognizing the importance and value of the Highway 3 corridor to the economy of our province. The twinning of Highway 3 is key to enhancing that value and it is encouraging to see the Government addressing that.” says Gordon Reynolds, Vice-president of the Highway 3 Twinning Development Association and Mayor of Bow Island.

“Thank you to the province for seeing the importance and need to continue twinning of Highway 3, and how important it is for another route through to the coast.” says Jack Brewin, Treasurer of the Highway 3 Twinning Development Association and Councillor for the Town of Taber.

“Highway 3 Twinning and Development Association has been promoting development in the Highway 3 region of Alberta for years. We welcome initiatives that improve the quality of life for those living in this vital corridor.

The safety and prosperity of the residents and visitors to the area are primary objectives. Actions from the Government of Alberta that assist in achieving these objectives are welcome.” says Brian Hildebrand, Director of the Highway 3 Twinning Development Association and Councillor for the M.D. of Taber.
