“The SYD Road upgrade will meet industry’s needs and provide the right balance between cost, speed and safety.”
“A safe, high quality road with regular maintenance is vital to the thriving oil and gas industry,” says Ron Ramsay, one of the founding members of the Road User Group.
The Road User Group represents 41 oil and gas companies and 2 forestry users who pay user fees to the government based on assets and activities in the area served by the SYD Road.
A substantial increase in traffic since 1998 has overtaxed the existing road, leading to concerns about safety and travel conditions.
“The SYD Road upgrade will meet industry’s needs and provide the right balance between cost, speed and safety,” Ramsay says. “It will make Fort Nelson more competitive as a staging, servicing and supply area for the northeast oil and gas fields.”
