Province earmarks $2.4 billion in multi-year renewal strategy.

As part of its 2022 budget, the Manitoba government has announced a $2.4 billion multi-year infrastructure capital investment strategy that includes an annual minimum commitment of $500 million in highway capital projects,

“Budget 2022 is a historic budget for Manitoba,” stated the province’s transportation and infrastructure minister, Doyle Piwniuk. “For the first time in our province’s history, a three-year capital plan is introduced to address key priorities to strengthen, invest and build on the province’s infrastructure.”

Piwniuk explained the plan targets a number of key initiatives, including a minimum investment of $1.5 billion in Manitoba’s highway network, and brings the province more in line with other governments in Canada, with respect to timelines.

Planned investments include the construction of a new interchange at the Perimeter Highway and St. Mary’s Road, and the design and initial phases of a second new interchange at the Perimeter and PTH 3 (McGillivray Boulevard), as well as improvements along key trade corridors.


The plan reflects last year’s public engagement process that resulted in 3,400 respondents provided feedback.
