PC MLA Jamie Fox is calling on the MacLauchlan government to take immediate action to replace the Searletown Bridge on Route 10.
Last week, weight restrictions and a reduction to one lane were announced for the aging structure.
Fox says that couldn’t come at a worse time for PEI’s farming and tourism industries.
He says Route 10 is an important route linking the Bedeque Region straight through to Tryon and sees a lot of traffic and farm machines.
Fox is calling on a full replacement of the bridge.
He’s says it’s beyond repair.
