Vernon/North Dundas, August 26, 2010 – Nepean-Carleton MP Pierre Poilievre, along with MP Guy Lauzon, Councillor Doug Thompson, and Mayor of North Dundas, Alvin Runnalls, celebrated the completion of Belmeade Rd. with a ribbon cutting ceremony.

Belmeade Road is a boundary road between the Township of North Dundas and the City of Ottawa running 10km east and west between County Road 31 (Bank Street) and SD&G County Road 1 at Reids Mills. As part of the Conservative government’s Economic Action Plan, the cost of this project was shared between all levels of government with the municipal portion being shared between the City of Ottawa and the Township of North Dundas. MP Guy Lauzon said “”This is another concrete example right here in Stormont- Dundas – South Glengarry of Canada’s Economic Action Plan encouraging all three levels of government to work together for the benefit of Canadian taxpayers.”

Prior to the completion of this project the gravel surface and improper base of the Belmeade Road resulted in very poor spring road conditions with large pot holes and crevices. “This project is one that was long over-due,” MP Pierre Poilievre said, “and I am happy to say that this is just one more example of how our government is committed to improving infrastructure across Canada.” The reconstructed road improves safety for travelers and will limit the amount of annual maintenance required.
