Roads and highways are critical public infrastructure that Albertans depend on daily – to access healthcare and education, facilitate employment, or deliver products and services to markets. We all have a responsibility to ensure Alberta’s road infrastructure is well-managed and delivers the greatest benefit to Albertans. The Alberta Road Builders and Heavy Construction Association is committed to raising awareness about much-needed improvements for #betterABroads.

We encourage you to learn about the challenges of Alberta’s current approach to managing and funding road infrastructure, and our solutions for #betterABroads.

It is time to stand up for #betterABroads.

Key Policy Priorities

The ARHCA has identified 3 key priorities for a modernized approach to road infrastructure governance and accountability. Our recommendations are based on the input of an expert Advisory Panel.

Legislate a targeted reduction of highways in poor condition by scaling up rehabilitation spending to a recommended 1-2% of asset value by 2023 to ensure provincial highways are resilient and provide Albertans with improved service levels.

Develop a long-term vision and strategy for Alberta’s transportation infrastructure to anticipate future demands, consider emerging technologies, address public safety, and facilitate the growth of our economy and our communities.

Create an independent agency responsible for road infrastructure management, transparent project selection and strategic procurement of road construction and maintenance services to achieve the best outcomes for taxpayers.
