After serving the South Vancouver Island Service Area in providing excellent highway maintenance services over the past 15 years, we wish to inform our valued stakeholders that effective October 1, 2019, Mainroad will no longer be providing this service. Highway maintenance for Service Area 1 will now be performed by Emcon Services.
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 dated September 16th, 2019: Improved maintenance standards for South Island highways.
“While the loss of the Service Area 1 contract is obviously disappointing and indicative of a very competitive tender process, Mainroad crews were very proud to serve South Island communities. We enjoyed the excellent relationships held with the Ministry and our stakeholders – thank you for your support! We wish Emcon Services every success,” Peter Ashcroft, President and CEO for the Mainroad Group.
Effective October 1, 2019, please reference Emcon’s 24 hour public information hotline for the South Island Service Area, 1-866-353-3136.
Also, we would like to remind everyone that winter is coming so please Shift into Winter and drive to the conditions.
Safe travels everyone.
