Manitoba Government Launches Public Consultations to Improve Highway Safety

Manitobans are invited to provide feedback on a functional design study to improve safety at the intersection of the Trans-Canada Highway and Provincial Trunk Highway (PTH) 5 near Carberry, Transportation and Infrastructure Minister Lisa Naylor announced today.

“Following the tragic collision near Carberry on June 15, 2023, the Manitoba government has been focused on supporting victims and their families as well as identifying ways to enhance safety measures at this intersection,” said Naylor. “We want to hear from those who use this stretch of highway and know it the best to weigh in on what option they would like to see used at this intersection.”

A public open house to begin design work at the intersection will take place at the Carberry Community Memorial Hall from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. on July 16. Manitobans are invited to attend the event to comment on the project and learn about the next steps in the design process. This fall, the intersection options, including the three options identified in the in-service road safety review, will be available for public feedback at

Manitoba Transportation and Infrastructure (MTI) anticipates a preferred intersection layout for the Trans-Canada Highway and PTH 5 will be identified in late 2024 and the functional design report will be completed in early 2025. Intersection improvements are scheduled for completion in fall of 2026, the minister noted.

The province will also be holding public consultation for the intersection of PTH 12 and Provincial Road (PR) 210. An open house is scheduled at Club Jovial in Ste. Anne on July 11 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. The open house will provide an overview of the project, present design alternatives under consideration, and advise of the next steps.

Attendees will be provided an opportunity to share comments with the design team. This stage of the project will also be available for community participation and feedback on EngageMB in mid-July. Commentary and feedback will be used to guide development of intersection options. MTI anticipates a preferred intersection layout for PTH 12 and PR 210 will be identified in late 2024 and the functional design report will be completed in early 2025.

These projects support Manitoba’s multi-year infrastructure investment strategy, a five-year plan for strategic investments in roads, highways, bridges, airports and flood protection in Manitoba.
