FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 

Proud to have served Howe Sound Service Area communities.      

Burnaby, BC | October 25, 2018 – After serving the Howe Sound Service Area in providing excellent highway maintenance services over the past 15 years, we wish to inform our valued stakeholders that effective November 1st, 2018, Mainroad will no longer be providing this service.  Highway maintenance for Service Area 4 will now be performed by Miller Capilano.

The Ministry has made modifications to the highway maintenance standards across the Province to better serve motorists.  Here is a link to the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure’s news release issued this morning: Howe Sound Contract Award.

“While the loss of the Service Area 4 contract is obviously disappointing
and indicative of a very competitive tender process, Mainroad crews were very proud to serve Howe Sound communities.  We enjoyed the excellent relationships held with the Ministry and our stakeholders – thank you for your support!  We wish Miller Capilano every success,” Peter Ashcroft, President and CEO for the Mainroad Group.

Effective November 1st, 2018, please make reference to Miller Capilano’s 24 hour hotline for the Howe Sound Service Area, 1-866-918-1010.

Also, we would like to remind everyone that winter is coming so please Shift into Winter driving mode and drive to the conditions.

Let’s all have a safe winter!
