Letters: Hwy. 14 is heaving and sinking

I still can’t understand the lack of push from this MLA to seek urgent repairs for Highway 14 west towards Port Renfrew.

After reading the “Chat with MLA John Horgan” from Dec 11, I still can’t understand the lack of push from this MLA to seek urgent repairs for Highway 14 west towards Port Renfrew.

The MLA may not know the roadway is getting worse by every heavy rain fall and every heavy truck daily. The roadway is opening up gaps, heaving and sinking at a faster rate than even the highways department notices.

Why can’t this MLA not speak directly to the Ministry of Highways and see to it that road is safe for all the road users. The road is being beaten up by cement trucks and lumber supply trucks heading to the growing Port Renfrew region. This road is shared by the school buses and tourists venturing out to the west coast. It’s not safe. Period.
