Proponents of a four-lane Highway 3 across the province have hired an
advocate and administrator.
Victoria Chester has been named director of advancement for the
Highway 3 Twinning Development Association.
“We are committed to this vital project and its construction, and
Victoria is the perfect person to help us achieve that vision,” says
association president Bill Chapman.
Chester brings 25 years of experience in property management, home
building and related fields, he says.
As shown by a recent University of Lethbridge study, Chapman says,
government investment in the project would be sustainable.
“The project would provide assurance of over 90 per cent to the
public that it would generate more benefits than it costs,” he adds.
“Twinning Highway 3 is a tremendous goal, and I am excited that we
have a great group of municipalities who see the Highway 3 corridor as
the lifeline for economic development, tourism and recreation — and
in particular for safety,” Chester says.
Formed in 2001, the association has a membership of 20 municipalities
and counties along with Members of Parliament and Alberta MLAs
representing the region.
